Lynn & Rich's On-Going Adventure
We previously had 3 small raised beds which we removed in the spring of 2010. They were constructed with pressure-treated wood that was not conducive to our "organic" way of gardening. We enlarged the entire space by rototilling a patch of land 30 ft long by 6 ft wide....situated between the fruit trees. Last year's crop did not go too well for us. A vegetable garden requires "attention"...enough was not given. We spent almost all of the summer in Tahoe and the weeds took over the veges. This year we're trying a "weed cloth" to see if we can change the outcome --- along with more dedication on our part.
For the second time we are attempting our own "starts" of basil, tomatoes, crookedneck squash, lettuce varieties, pole beans, sunflowers, black-eyed susan and peppers --- We are very pleased with the babies that have arrived. We have great hopes for a super harvest to share with friends, family and the community...It's a delight!!
