Time for a garden update! I’ve had a particularly good year in the garden this year. It’s not been without failures, but overall, I’m pretty happy.
I really feel like the new bed layout has done wonders for our little crops. They’ve gotten more sun, the drip system has given them more consistent water and, as you can see by the GIANT tomatoes, they are loving it.
We’ve pulled the beets, garlic, and a few other crops, spread some finished compost and have room to start more crops. Rotation plans are in the works for next spring.
I even peeped over the neighbor’s fence (the other neighbors). They moved in this spring, in the rental tri-plex unit next-door. And two of the households worked together to plant a huge garden in a tiny strip of dirt. I’ve been so impressed with their hard work!
