It was time to enlarge the area around the raspberries and asparagus to include my blueberries. I am also going to try my potatoes and tomatoes there this year. It has way more sun.
We just turned the sod this weekend and I know this looks like a hot mess. I'll put soil and moo-nure over it next weekend.
The raspberries love it there! They are literally coming up like weeds.
I was so happy I moved the blueberries. The last 4 years, they've given me only a handful. I re-acidified the soil and now they are starting to really put out blooms.
My garlic is going bananas this year. I love taste of garlic scapes in the late spring. I used to cut 'em and throw them away until our local CSA gave them to us in one of our pick ups! I never knew you could eat them! Ever since then, I can hardly wait. They are like garlicky green beans.
This is the main garden. This year it will have all of the root crops like beets, onions and carrots. This is the slooooooooooooooow garden. Paaaaaaatience.........
The cold weather veggies this year go in the secondary add-on we put on about 3 years ago....
this year is broccoli and brussels sprouts. ( I had helpers for the signs.).
Corn is going in the front yard this year! I am going to try the 3 sisters method of planting that uses interplanting to benefit all of the plants, but I want to try watermelon instead of pumpkins. If it actually works, someone will be happy, either us or the raccoons .
My veggie "basket" is ready to go.
