We have built new beds this year for the garden. Let’s see what the garden looks like!!
Enter the side gate.
Three more beds need to be planted. Before I will dress the beds with a nice layer of compost, I need to finish up weeding.
Eggplant with red lettuce in the bed. Every bed has arugula, kale or various assorted lettuce. We can only grow lettuce for another month and a half.
The raised beds are an experiment. I love how they look in the garden but I love the idea of not weeding Bermuda grass for five hours a week.
I bought the plans here and will keep you posted about how the herbs grow. Melanie @ Raised Urban Gardens grows everything in her raised beds except for carrots. She lives in Texas and we both have exactly the same amount of rainfall during the year. I plan on painting them to match the house... yeah I am weird like that.
Love my bottle tree, even if my hubby thinks it is red neck.
I still have lots to do in the garden, doesn’t everyone? But it is starting to look pretty.
