Our big garden

As you can see, Keith and Denise have a large plot of garden that they share with me and Eddie and Trudi. We have Corn, Beans, Okra, Yellow and Zucchini Squash, Cucumbers, Lots of Peppers and Tomatoes, Green and Red Cabbage, Watermelon, Decorative and Pie Pumpkins, Onions, Kale, Spinash, Turnips, Potatoes, Japanese Eggplant and maybe some things I can't think of now.

Box Gardens

I have a nice crop of Romaine Lettuce and Radishes, and a start of Carrots and SwissChard.

And I built another really raised bed on top of an old picnic table. I made the box, freestanding on table, from deck boards.

Then I lined with landscape fabric.

I added a layer of leaves, then garden soil mixed with my compost. I planted radishes and will have room for the Bok Choy that I am starting in greenhouse, they're just about an inch tall now, so will wait a few days to transplant.

The compost pile was hard to dig in because of little roots so I tilled it and it's much easier to get out.

Cleaned Picnic Tables

I pressure washed the picnic tables and resealed them. I did get a before and after picture, kinda.
