To those who wondered about the patches of blue in my garden, here is a close up.
It was quite dark and rainy when I took these photos, but hopefully you will get the idea.
Well, it's pretty in real life, but it does look a bit drab in these photos.
These beds, which were bare a few months ago, are filling up more and more each day.
I had five half barrels just sitting around, so I have put them to use growing potatoes. A different kind in each barrel, using the straw method on top of 6 inches of soil.
- I'm growing 3 different types of peas. The beds look so nice when they're newly mulched.
Please garden gods, give me gravel for the paths this year!
I clearly remember filling these beds with 10 yards of soil. Every. single. shovel full. It was worth it. I love my raised beds.
Till next time…….
