catalinagrey(MN 3/4)June 2, 2009

Hi! I've lurked for a long time and enjoyed everyone's pics. Finally decided to join! Here are a few pics of my garden's progress this year.

I live in zone 3/4 and we had a late start to the season.

You have a lovely garden! I love the picure with all the tulips, both in and outside the box. It looks like they've just spilled out on the ground!

Thanks for the picture sequence. Please show them again in January and February when I somtimes think that our gardens will never be growing again.. It is amazing how quickly it turned from snow to grow.

Wow Catalinagrey ,
You have did a lot of work. Is this front yard or backyard.??? I can see some edibles> Please tell us what edibles you are growing ???? Beautiful . Oooh....You have a large yard. Jealous again. LOL
Did you do all of this yourself.??? Im jealous. LOL
Im trying to turn most of my front yard into garden.
Im tired of cutting grass.
Wish I had a plan or someone to help me design it.
I want mostly edibles. Right now have big Oak. Then other half front yard 6 new fruit trees and scattered among vegetables like mostly pepper plants.
I live in a surburban/ urban area.
Thanks all
Jean

Glad you like it!

I did all the work myself - except for making the raised beds, my dad did that for me.
I have a little of everything - onions, garlic, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, potatos, lettuce, carrots, swiss chard, beets, radishes, summer squash, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, peas, beans...
This is my backyard - I was sick of mowing and you can't eat grass!
I have some flowers mixed in, but mostly the flower section and the veggie section are separated. I had everything mixed last year (following the square foot garden method), but I found it was very hard to keep say onions next to flowers. At a certain point the onions need to dry and you can't water them, but the flowers need water, so it was frustrating.
This year I separated everything and organized. It can get over grown REALLY fast.
I drew out a map for the placement of the beds and then I stuck to it. It helped a lot!
Good luck with your garden!

I've made a few changes to my garden. For one thing I finally have the pond right and I moved and added some more raised beds.
