Some pics...

Here are the onions!!

And this is the backyard garden bed...the one with the onions, potatoes, beets, carrots, and loose leaf lettuces. Mom informed me that it looked like a graveyard. Ummm....thanks, Mom. The soil is heaped up in order to increase drainage in our heavy clay soil. Also, I needed to be sure the veggies got the most benefit out of the enriched soil we provided, so I heaped it up and left the walkways hard clay beds covered in loose hay. Hopefully it won't look like a graveyard after the freshly dug graves are covered in lush greenery.../sigh/

We also have another, larger bed out west of the privacy fence and two square foot beds you see in the background. I worked today on creating four container gardens in front of the chicken coop...perhaps pics of the decorated coop will come soon!!

Wow- I think it looks great. How exciting to already be planting. I have raised beds like the ones you have in the background. I will be adding a row garden, yours may be the one I copy. Thanks for sharing.

Wow it all looks so great! You have mad gardening skillz. I've decided that since I'm moving to the big ol' city, I needed to practice container gardening. Other than patio tomatos, I've always had a row garden. Any good advice on growing vegetables organically in 5 gal pickle buckets (Or whatever I can find and drill a hole in)?
