Wow, you guys have such awesome setups! Makes me a little jealous to be honest.
These pics are a bit old, so the tomato and zuke are bigger, and the peas are much fuller.
Here is the tomato setup I have. It's growing in an old dresser turned raised bed. I don't know if it technically counts as a raised bed, since it's on the patio. I'm not allowed to dig out a garden in our lawn. It's a rental and the land lord said no.
Anyway, I have a fake white wall behind the tomato. It's recommended in our area because it doesn't get all that hot, so tomatoes have trouble ripening here.
The two totes on either side of the dresser haven't been planted yet. I'm going to put summer squash in them.
I'm growing zucchini in a bag. A friend of mine recommended it because her mother does the same thing and has great success with it. So far so good!
Sugar snaps in the flower bed. I planted them a touch late, so I hope we get a decent crop before they die off from the warming temps. It worked last year to plant them this late because we had a really cool June, but I'm not sure how it will pan out this year. Next year I'm going to attempt to plant them a month sooner. They're only just now blooming. But if they don't produce much, at least they made a pretty vine wall on our patio step!
More peas against the house (the narrow part of the flower bed stretches all around the house). They aren't doing as well as the ones that have more circulation. I think because it's slightly hotter with them growing right up against the wall.
The mounds are where I placed potato traps for wire worms. I don't have a ton, but at the beginning of the season I was catching quite a few. I haven't seen more than one or two in the last week though.
Not sure if you can see them very well in the pic above, but I also planted green beans in front of the peas that are against the house. Not sure what's going on with them. They haven't been growing very fast. The soil needs some love. Next year I'm going to try to feed the soil and till it better than I did.
So yeah. That's my humble "garden."
I'm actually pretty excited about it. We aren't a big family, so much bigger would really probably be too much, unless I maybe grew some lettuce or something. We have a nice shady spot that might work for that. But I'll have to save it for next year, this is getting too expensive. LOL!
