Pullin' weeds and pickin' stones
We are made of dreams and bones
Need a place to grow my own
'Cause the time is close at hand ~ David Mallet
I see you have raised beds, which is how I grow vegetables. What have you covered the beds with? Straw?
Yes, the beds are in straw and the pathways are in pine needles. The exception is the two beds outside the garden for garlic. Those are mulched in grass clippings.
Yum, I say.My raised beds are now totally covered with shredded leaves and grass clippings. I kind of wander out there and wonder what to do with my time.Leslie, have you ever fall-planted spinach under all that straw? I've tried it for the last two years and it turns out really quite tender. It goes quickly so you can easily begin your regular plantings on schedule.
El, Fall spinach and I have a problem. I've been planting all fall and nothing has taken hold. I felt the same way last year and then last spring I had a lovely spinach harvest. You're right it's gone by the time tomatoes go in, so it is a wonderful spsring crop. I'm hoping for the best.
Wonderful! You have a lot of lugumes in the garden, I have only some fruits.Sigrun
Something about the tucked-in garden just looks so right and cozy. Too much Beatrix Potter, I suspect.
So satisfying to be a bystander-gardener looking at your garden. I feel I can give a sigh of satisfaction when you closed your garden gate for the season. Such a tucked-in beauty! Can't wait until you open it again. Enjoy your bounty in warmer climes!
