The Rest Of The Tour....

Raised Bed #6 is planted with leeks (Lancelot), carrots (Yaya), onions (Walla Walla), beets (Touchstone Gold), and more onions (Candy).

Bed #7 is growing garlic, beets (Merlin) and peas (Dakota).

This is one of the four potato boxes ... it's almost time to add another layer of soil over the growing plants (Desiree).

Bed #8 is the all new, hopefully improved, but definitely more interesting pea patch.  I made the teepees and trellises from twigs that I cut on our property and then laced up with twine...

I have some lettuce (Bambi) planted between the trellises of peas...

And finally...Bed #9...horseradish and potatoes....

So there is is...finally finished after three years in the making.  And all planted for spring!  Now if the weather would just cooperate and give us some sunshine so that things would start growing.....



  1. I love your pea teepees! They are just wonderful!

  2. Very nice indeed! I gave up on my potatoes. Too much work for how little we eat.

    I love your pea solution, I was out this mornng and found a few sprouts breaking ground, that's it for my peas right now. Nice work! Congratulations! Thanks for the tour!

  3. Those pea teepees are great! Everything looks really nice. It must feel good to finally have everything set-up the way you want it! Congrats!

  4. Bravo! Your garden is not only going to be very productive but it is very attractive as well. A place you are going to enjoy spending time in - even if there is no work to be done.
