The last update on the camp garden showed that we had it ready for soil to arrive. Here are a few reminders of what it looks like before all the hard work:
|Lots of potential?
|A well stacked corner
|The stairs and cardboard underlayment
Chris, of course, used the time wisely, and dug up some of our more annoying semi-buried boulders. They made it impossible to easily mow and keep up the cherry grove.
|That's actually a huge hole
|Ten yards of topsoil just disappeared
|Carefully coating the garden area
|Dumped and hand raked
|The fresh dirt is coolest
|Wild roses left in the garden wall
|Tomato cages add color
|Marigolds, tomatoes, kohlrabi
|Sunflowers, cauliflower, tomatillos, jalapeno
|Marigolds and dill bed
|Cokes, Zukes, summer squash
|Basil and another dill bed, tomatoes
|Homemade tomato cage
And now that we're into July, well, I've got flowers on everything and squash is starting to form. Really looking forward to some harvesting later this month.
We're continuing to make improvements. The shed is now up here, the water line has been run, and I've successfully identified what has been stealing marigolds and tomato plants (I mean, come on, what eats marigolds???). More on that later...
