My New Back Yard Garden!

Over the weekend, a friend of a friend — who is very much into gardening — came over and helped me build some raised beds in the back yard.

That’s a dwarf lemon tree. In the first bed are a few types of tomatoes. Will add scallions and garlic this weekend. In the second bed, we have lettuce, broccoli, kale, green beans, peas, sweet onions. In the third bed are blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries.

I forgot that I have some seeds for butternut squash, so I’m going to plant a couple of those in a pot and see what happens.

If all goes well, I’d like to add in spinach, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes. Yum!

I’m hoping to do well maintaining my new gardens and get some good produce! I’m also growing some herbs in pots on the back porch.

The longer-term plan, assuming I can keep these things alive and fruit-bearing, is to surround the beds with concrete blocks (on their sides) and grow the marigolds and the herbs in the holes in the blocks.

And so the new gardening adventure begins!

Now to figure out how to keep the dog out of the beds…

  1. Hi There Blog,
    This question may be a little off-topic, Many people are beginning to grow more of their own food in their back yard garden. In order to benefit from the most fertile soil mixture, they have resorted to making compost for their garden. Using an urban compost tumbler is the best and fastest way to get the desired results in your composting. Many people are achieving their desired results in only a few weeks.
    Keep up the posts!
