MY garden Last week in July

Saturday, August 08, 2009

This is one of the raised beds I have put in my garden.
The soil is clay and it is squishy in the rain and adobe in the summer.
So I have been trying to build it up. I have quit trying to fix the existing soil.I have bought good soil and filled up the raised beds.
then I replanted the plants that were not doing well in the native soil.
Let's see how these plants do that have been in the soil since the first of May do in the raised bed. I just love to garden. I can spend hours just puttering around. I can spend hours mowing, weed eating, digging out weeds etc.

    Looking good! I started new raised beds with fresh soil this year. I didn't get mine planted until early June. It has been a cool and wet summer here. The peas and pole beans have just started flowering. There are several baby tomatoes. Lots of squash flowers but no fruit yet.
