Still can't get into mine as it has rained the last six days in a row! Bought all the plants and potatoes and they look like they might not make it by the time I actually get them in the ground.

Better late than never. I finally got my salsa garden started. Added 2 yr old composted manure to my old beds and filled a new bed with 100% manure (that one will be an experiment) I put soaker hose under breathable black fabric on 2 beds and am trying straw on the new bed. 4 varieties of tomatoes a bunch of peppers. Im trying some potatoes in the new bed, I still need to plant onions. Chickens got through the electric last night and uprooted most of the straw covered bed. I tried to catch them and kill them but they are simply too fast.

Looking good... I have always wanted to try something like that keep us posted with pics . I was thinking of using the dirt from the chicken coop or pig pen and doing a small garden just like those you have.

i cut way back on my gardening efforts this year. With the wife battling these leg infections she is unable to help me put it up and it was just going to waste ....

So I just planted a few tomatoes and peppers and cucumbers for the table. but they are doing pretty well.

I just got through planting the garden. Hopefully I wont be here for the harvest as the place is up for sale. But the garden gate is only about 30 feet from the backdoor. I figured having something growing will help to make the place more attractive to someone.
