As described here, Stacie made two more beds and planted in those plus another one that had been prepared by a Blitz volunteer this past Saturday. First is our front yard herb garden.
Bearing oregano, sage, thyme, and parsley, but no rosemary…
Next is our strawberry bed, which is between the front yard and the rear garden area. We have before and after pictures. Stacie made the bed frame, and then we laid down newspaper inside of it. It was a windy day, so we had laid the house hose on top of the newspapers to keep them from blowing away while I took the picture.
The third new bed, which currently contains asparagus shoots, is right behind the evergreen tree in the above picture. It now has a bed liner, and I’ll probably add some more seedlings or sow seeds in it. (Complimentary planting is good.) You can see the back corner of one of the five planting beds in the upper left corner of the picture.
Finally, we were delighted to move in and find that raspberries were already growing here.
Given the total of eight planting beds we now have, I am hoping for many wonderful harvests throughout the year. I’ll measure the three new beds and have a rough estimate of total planting space up soon.
