This year my family in some raised bed gardens! Finally! We'd been holding off because of all the rabbits and deer and javelinas in the area, but we finally decided to make the fenced-in dog run a garden. Everything is already so beautiful! We have:
5 kinds of tomatoes
Sunflowers (I insisted on those. :D )
Need toplan mygarden better next year but a fallen tree gave a a double size plot ( much more sun)
so I am building new garden spaces with coffee grounds, leaves, grass and newspaper( layers of each and keep it wet.
The othr 3 plots are growing great but some cabbages and squashes are expanding to fill the spces and covring some others....
Plan better next year- still going to get some great stuff this year
it's the sign of a true gardener that it will always "be better next year" :)
