Just built a second raised bed. The first one is 4' x 8' and the second one is 5' x 10'. Next I need to fill it up with soil.

Started varieties of tomatoes, bell peppers, melons, squash, cauliflower, broc, buttercrunch lettuce, and a couple varieties of flowers, chives, think thats all.

Cleaned out on flower bed, finally got my hubby to understand the raised bed concept. He really liked the no till idea. Took a walk down to the old corrals and figured out how many hog panels I have, for trellis and the like. All in all a good day.

Going to plant peas and mix container soil using coconut coir, perlite and compost.
Plant onion sets. Really too hot to work that hard.

Both.....I ordered some "loose" compost from the farm & feed store. I always have 2 huge composts in the way back yard....but I like to have 4" of compost added in my main veggie garden every spring before it gets was about 1,200 pounds of compost delivered to me from the farm & feed store, the rest of it was mine from over the past's a LOT to haul, but once it is in the garden and it gets raked out, doesn't seem like very much....

Re: What are you all doing for your gardens right now???
Earl, I have the same trailer, had it for years, we had to replace the tires once, we use it often.

I'm still cleaning out flower beds, just took my pot plants out of the makeshift hot house, cleaning them up and repotting some. Hubby has onions, potatoes and some tomatoes planted. I've tried to talk him into the raised beds luck there.

Re: What are you all doing for your gardens right now???
Lordy, Earl, that's some list!!!!!! I'm impressed.

This is delivery day for compost and concrete blocks for more raised beds and I'm looking forward to it. Not so much looking forward to hauling and lifing and shoveling tomorrow... :)
