Today, in celebration of hitting 15,000 subscribers, I posted an entertaining tour through the little vegetable gardens out back:
The beds and fencing, etc., aren’t the way I would design a garden but the pre-made space works pretty well and has been a blessing. We’re getting some good pumpkins now, as well as greens and perennial cucumbers.
Here, as a comparison, is a garden I designed:
I don’t like raised beds all that much and was mostly phasing them out in my Florida gardens; however, they are more useful here where the soil is filled with rocks and clay.
In the future I hope to dig and sort all the rocks out of the beds which will help even more.
It is nice to get some Seminole pumpkins from the garden but I am quite disappointed they all seem to be the necked variety. That was unexpected – not what I thought I had saved.
Have a great weekend. I’ll be getting some gardening done today.
