Yes, it should. I really need to attend a meeting, I think.
Here is the third in-ground tomato garden staging map. It's a small area and just a few tomatoes. But the map maybe expanded later to include the "Bucket Brigade" of dwarfs and compact determinates in 5 gal bucket containers which, ATM, I'm thinking will be lined up on the adjacent patio.
Due to many interruptions, I only got around to very roughly prepping the area. Actually I still need to add more amendments.
The wall trellis to the right supports a trumpet honeysuckle and a robin builds a nest in it every year (is it the same bird?). She is sitting on her eggs now and takes off with an alarm call every time I get "too close." I don't know how many times I jumped when she screeched in my ear and winged right by me. Then she wouldn't come back to the nest until I left the area.
...then I discovered a BIG poison ivy near the foundation. It had big leaves -- probably a 3rd year or older plant --- and had grown a couple of branching vines under
the siding (thank you mrs. Robin
But the major "side track" came from the brick path. They were originally arranged to form curbed bays in front of the bed for strawberries. When I removed them for thorough weeding, I had the idea to make a path for easier access because this bed is 4 ft deep and I can't reach all the way in. I rather like it.
...but it did make the available planting space smaller.....
I did plant the potatoes. They are tiny shriveled up overgrown sprouted in the pantry leftovers from last year' harvest. So I have no idea how well they will grow. But they will necessitate thorough digging up of the front border area during harvest, plus the all the mulch used for the potato growing can be worked in. I'll be able to get the area in better shape for next year after re-situating and re-arranging the strawberry plants properly in the process. Potatoes are good pioneer crop in new or refurbishing beds.
In a sunny, well drained area, sweet potatoes are great for next year's heavy feeders because you can leave behind all the vines and foliage greens over the winter to break down.
