Extending the Garden

Where have I been for the past few weeks?  Well once the snow melted, I have either been working in town or on the farm.  An extra long winter has left us scrambling to play catch up.  As I started planting I realized I desperately need more garden space.  Dear Hubby built me a new bed for my birthday....Yeah!


This bed will be for beans, corn, tomatoes, melons, pumpkin and overflow peppers.


This bed will be for onions in the spring and then I plan to plant some garlic in the fall.
 



This empty space between the bed and fence will eventually be a raised raspberry or blueberry bed.  Not this summer, maybe next.
 

Look at how thick that mulch is!  I dare any week to wiggle their way through.



I can already tell that we will have to add another raised bed for more corn, peppers, melons, etc. and a separate bed for strawberries.  When I originally planted the strawberries I didn't plan ahead very well.  I will also have to move my rhubarb, I didn't plan ahead there either.

Happy gardening everyone!
