Still working on the container garden for this year. Bringing in compost and cutting these drums down. Cutting 55 gal drums is getting monotonous but I don't have much further to go. I'm playing around with different arrangements now, trying to strike a balance between aesthetics and functionality. I like a lot of curves in the garden, but I can't set it up to where some plants will block the sun from the ones behind it if they aren't in the right direction. Just thought I'd throw up some photos since I go to play around today, I had to climb on top of my shed to be able to show everything.
The two pics should be side by side to give a panoramic view, but I don't have photoshop on this computer and 'preview" wouldn't let me do it. A touch of imagination required...the pic with the pile of compost and the trellis would be to the left.
The area inside the circular area would be a large no dig potato bed and the square in the back corner would be corn. The raised bed in the middle is where the asparagus is.
Comments and suggestions always welcome!
