My garden

jengc(7)April 22, 2009

This is a link to my flickr pictures. I would call it a SFG but I kinda went out on my own LOL I did use Mel's mix though.

It looks kinda crude because I used a retaining wall that was blown down by tornadic winds. So that was free! YAY! and I used the black plastic to keep the soil in and not seep through the cracks. I also poked holes in it so the plants didnt drown.

This was taking March 18th. I will take more pictures with my potatoes blooming and onions poking up. I have changed most of my things to containers though.

Free is good! Those veggies won't know the difference. :-) Be sure to post photos of everything, when it gets to growin' good. Welcome to the best forum on GW!

Definitely an interesting shape, but it looks great!

Good luck :)

Well, the shape came from exhaustion! LOL That wall was horribly heavy and I had it set up a tad too close to the wall because I wanted to plant vine plants to the right that is the side of the driveway. After I got the front fixed, the back just merged together. It came out better because the back end holds my carrots and potatoes (and corn) that are the deep vegetables and the front holds all my 6 inch vegetables. I am wanting the strawberries to eventually cover the brick in the back and I am going to (some day) screw boards on the front end to cover those bricks so it looks a lot nicer. I will post pics then too LOL
