New garden raised beds



The Torgesen plants are going to have it so good this year!  Raised beds with lots of room to grow, nice soil and we will be eating good this summer!


We are planning peas, green beans, beets, carrots, radishes, kale, spinach, salad greens, chard, herbs, zucchini, and of course tomatoes!  I might have forgot some plants, they’ll be a surprise I guess!

Right now there are just some little baby plants all sprouting up in the moist cool spring air (and I do mean cool!).  After last Spring’s cool and drenchingly wet season, I just couldn’t imagine a cool Spring again.  But, that is what we seem to have with us this year.  We can have clear plastic over the white pipe to make some mini-green houses.

And the happiest place for the peas is right up against the wall with some netting to climb their tendrils up.  I can just taste the sweet crunch of a sugar snap pea right now.  Chomp!

It will be fun to see how these gardens grow this year – another few months and these will be full of big plants!

Yum! I'm looking forward to being home without brand new babies for a summer veggie garden. I guess it'll just have to wait another year, but I can live vicariously through your garden when we are in AK. I'd love to see updates as things grow!
