I have been busy, busy trying to keep busy that is. With life getting in the way I have been slowly but surely trying to rejuvenate my gardens. The main reason is the mass of grass and weeds that were growing along my fence. It was nearly impossible, no totally impossible to keep it under control. Weed whacking against a fence is futile. So now I will have a clean hard surface I can control them with. Not too mention my newer, smaller garden had a mix of those cheap fold out garden fences around it. It kept the dog at bay but looked pretty bad. It too was impossible to weed against.
Just look at the amount of amendments I need to add to fill that up! Next time don't you guy's let me wait so long in the year to start. Though I was waiting for tax money, but I have been pushing it to get the small one done. I am late in planting the cold crops. Though I managed to get a few in today. It was late when I finished and tomorrow they are calling for rain. But this week I will start filling it up with plants and seeds. Than onto finishing the other side. That bigger one is going to be mainly tomatoes so I have a little time. It was a pain I had to modify the post and the fencing to get it where I wanted.
This is the unfinished bigger garden. You can see the mass of growth at the fence line. The other garden was basically like this only uglier. ;D
Here is the finished smaller garden.
Here are the plants I put in today in the garden, and Lucy. She is sad she can't be in my garden anymore after being constantly told to get the heck out. I expanded this last fall and didn't have enough fence to go all the way. So she loved going in there, than decided what fence I had up was great to jump over. >:(
While we are at it my garlic bed. I have 4 variety's going in here.
Blane, Iva and whoever else I gave garlic to last year. The three rows on the left are the Music and Chesnok Red that I was giving out.
