The thing I really like is that it is nice to be working in the yard. I have plenty of work to do out there. Weeds are all over the place. There has been scrapping, and pulling, and digging, and planting.
I LOVE the planting part.
When I am planting a bed, keep in mind that it is very windy around here sometimes and that will dry out a garden real fast. So I plant things close together to save water. And...sometimes when you grow things together they protect each other.
Then, in a wide row (4 inches wide) I planted in a zig-zag pattern...Onions...three kinds. Red, yellow, and white. Then a row of strawberries. Then a wide row of onions...and so on. I have four boxes that are 4X8 ft. along that fence. Each box has 80 onion plants, 10 strawberry plants, and a wide row of peas. Each row of potatoes has 10 plants.
Along the South end of this garden, along the fence I planted fava beans, lima beans and a few peas. Then I planted the cabbage, some shallots, and a bunch of garlic.
There are a few empty beds and rows but I have plans for them. More potatoes and Beets! I just love pickled beets and roasted golden beets. I love them in my salads or just plain.
As you can see, there is no moss growing on me.
