Finally put the finishing touches on this project last week. I tore out the old rotten garden beds graded it flat with a skid loader and started over.
tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, tomatillos, beans, peas, kohlrabi, lettuce blend, zucchini, watermelon, carrots, chard, and probably a few im forgetting.

Trying cedar mulch in the beds to control weeds and hopefully keep the bugs away. I know the fence won’t keep all the deer out, but it deters them. Maybe this project will buy me enough brownie points for another hunt this Fall?

Weather has not been kind. Wind has knocked the crap out of a lot of stuff. Have spinach, lettuce, kale, and onions growing; carrots, green beans, beets, and corn sewed. Pepper starts go in this weekend maybe, if the wind dies down. Cucumber, squash and zuk starts get transplanted next weekend.

This USED to be my garden….I previously had 10 raised beds, and grew all kinds of heirloom stuff. But also a LOT of weeds. And I fed a lot of rabbits, groundhogs, chipmunks, and other things.

But that’s all gone. Now the area produces even more work, takes much more money, and gives me no food. Progress????

I still have to finish the fence and perimeter landscaping this year. Next year I’ll maybe rebuild a smaller garden further back. That’s if I have any money leftover for seeds! 🥴

That crystal clear pond will make a nice water source for your future garden.

That’s a nice pool!

We have herbs, blueberries, plums, and raspberries as well. The fruit things are all young and don’t produce a lot yet but they are fun!

Forgot to mention Meyer Lemon and a Peach tree.
Using Trifecta+ fertilizer from MIgardener this year for the first time and I am presently impressed with the outcome. Down here we get to run a winter garden and a spring\summer garden. So cool season crops like carrots, lettuce, brocolli and Kale are either done or almost done. Onions are usually done by now but I accidentally bought a long season onion so we will see how they play out.
