Raised Garden August '07


Here's the raised garden as of yesterday (8.6.07) It's a little hard to see, but those are tomatoes on the right and along the back. Beans are in the center, carrots on the left. On the far left in back are 3 of the Romanesco plants - still no sign of a floret or whatever it's called on any of them. Someone told me they took forever, I guess they weren't kidding. Hidden in various spots are some beets, leeks, and scallions.There's some peppers on the right and left hand side, and finally, a bunch of dill sprinkled throughout.

I didn't pack it in as much as I usually do, but instead, this year I went for a more random disorganized approach. Some areas are packed in and others are nearly barren and constantly needing to be weeded. Oh well, one of these years I'll get it just perfect! Then We'll probably have a tornado or something. ; )

btw, that's our garage in the background, not our house!

Gorgeous! My dream veggie garden. I'm looking forward to next year when I am within a stone's throw of my garden at all times, unlike now, when I can't tend to it's needs. Man, garden's are needy!

Wow - Is that giant dinosaur kale I see? It's hard for things to look fresh with all this heat and humidity, but your garden looks great. I hope you escaped the hail.

Thanks Greengirl! No hail here so far. (crosses fingers)

Actually the giant kale looking stuff is Romanesco broccoli. It is pretty big isn't it? Kinda glad I didn't grow more, I didn't know it would get so big.
