25th Garden Day

We planted our raised garden bed 25 days ago and couldn't be happier.

All our plants are doing well and we've had very few weeds.

We should be able to start picking spinach this week and hope to do so right through to the end of November.

Half the garden is in carrots and we will protect them with leaves and a cover once the cold weather arrives.

The white tank holds rainwater we use to water the garden. Next year we will replace it with a 250 gallon tank which should easily take us through any summer dry spells.

The deer netting which covers the garden has kept out the squirrels, deer and birds. We also lined the box with landscape fabric hoping this might slow down any rotting of the box over the years.

I'll post again in 25 days to update the garden progress and highlight the produce we are enjoying.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
