Hmm...sure I have, but I can post them here again. I like to show it off, humble as it may be. Basically, my house is on a flat spot they blasted out of a shale hill, so very little actual dirt anywhere. You can't generally dig more than 2 or 3 inches before hitting solid shale.applestar wrote:That rock wall (?) should keep them warm.
Have you posted photos of the rest of your garden? Curious now....
I'd love to see progress photos.
The tomato patch pictured above is right behind my house. The wall you see is a retaining wall about 3.5 or 4 feet tall at the highest that separates my back patio area from the back yard, which is at about eye level if you walk out the back door. Another shot of that area:
Up above the wall is my most recent "bed". I dug that out and have planted corns, beans, and collards here over the last couple of years. This area is at the top of the wall at about eye level:
This bed is up in the middle of the yard. 4 feet by 8 feet:
My "main" bed is about 16 feet long by 6 feet wide. Its above the main portion of my retaining wall which is a typical block wall. The far end of this bed is where I put my hoop house in the fall.:
I also have a few other beds tucked into various recesses in the retaining wall system, and I also have a LOT of containers.:
I have one additional bed out in the front yard that is about 15 feet long by 5 feet wide, but no pictures at the moment.
Finally, since this is the mater board, lets finish off with a money shot of a cluster of sleeping lady from last year.:
