We had our work cut out for us today and it sure feels good to get some more plants in the ground. Here is our existing ornamental/edible garden bed after new bamboo trellises were added and a lot of seed was planted.
|Here you can see some new trellises (3) today and a new bed of plantings next to the walkway. |
For the trellises I planted pole beans/summer savory, scarlet runner beans/summer savory, cucumbers, and a mixture of the pole beans/scarlet runner beans and summer savory. We love fresh green beans! For the bed next to the walkway I planted corn - painted hill corn, sweet corn and strawberry popcorn, pumpkins, melons, squash and sunflowers. In some side beds I planted cilantro and bush beans. Once everything starts growing I'll see what to add. Also, I scattered sunflower seeds everywhere!
|Before we planted this morning - We planted near that orange tree in the distance.|
|Our new plantings - (2) peach trees to espalier, Japanese magnolia and pineapple guava|
|Here is a before picture of the beds without the trellises. From here you can see the Swiss chard/onion, peas, broccoli and broccoli and onion bed.|
