Garden Update

IMG_0288It has been several weeks since I did any updates on the raised bed gardens. Everything seems to be growing healthy and quickly. I noticed a few leaves being eaten about two weeks ago so I placed some more mint and marigolds in different areas of the garden. It seemed to have done the trick. I am already eating lettuce and it looks like everything else is just a few weeks away from starting to produce.

  3. very, very nice raised beds! the pics are lovely as well, and I like the mix of the colors, flowers, and vegetables. pretty soon you’ll have more zucchini then you know what to do with! good job!

  4. Glad adding more marigolds worked. I have heard it really does not help, but maybe it’s that people do not use enough of them. It must be great to grow your own food and everyone should.

    beautiful……I can smell the “green” from here….I also use sawdust around the bottom of my plants…some of the bugs, the slimy ones anyway won’t crawl across it….just a thought…..I can’t wait until the winter so I can put a few tomatoes and cucumbers in pots, going to be a learning curve growing in the desert anytime of the year…LOL
