Enlarging the garden

So glad that Hubby decided we needed to enlarge the vegetable garden before we began planting. Originally it stopped at the end of the the chicken coop. (the 6ft poles, with the netting). Now it’s large enough that we can plant all the summer crops and some root crops that do well in the shade of summer crops (carrots shaded by tomatoes). The trench you see in the bottom right hand corner is where one of the rows of Asparagus grows, next to the walk way. The potatoes are in two foot deep trenches next to the chicken coop. As they grow will return the soil to the trenches giving them quite a lot of room to get a nice potato crop.  We’ve also planted some Blackberry bushes although we’ll have to give them time to grow and like the Asparagus – hoping next year we’ll get a nice crop. We need to wait until Memorial Day to plant everything, but our seeds are already started and ready to go. 🙂
