Today I spent quite most of the day working in the garden. Most of my day was building another raised garden bed. It the last of the beds that I plan to build for this growing season. Rather then build two small beds, I built one large bed. It is 15 feet long and just over 4 feet wide. Like the other beds it is built out of concrete block because that is the best combination of price and durability for me.
I am pleased with how this bed turned out. It isn’t totally straight, but it is much better then my last attempt. The large wood pieces in the bed are rotten tree stumps that were at the house when we bought it. I am going to break them up and line the bottom of the bed with the pieces of wood. Eventually, they will decompose and provide nutrients to the plants in the bed.
I also took a few pictures of the yard, and I had Lynn take some for me with her nicer camera.
I was suprised at how much my cabbage and kale seedlings look alike. I think the one on the left is cabbage and the other is kale. Now I don’t remember which pictures is which and can’t tell the difference.
The plants are really starting to grow. Our weather has been unseasonably warm with several days in the low to mid 90s. All that warm weather has made for some very happy plants, and I can’t wait to see how they grow and eat the food that comes from them.
