In just a few days the corn and the....
peas have grown by leaps and bounds.
Here is a the three new beds Byron built this past weekend. We're going to build three more this coming weekend. The second phase of the potager will be finished when these beds are filled with soil. This picture shows the stages of my garden. As I cover the paths thickly with cardboard, I am covering the cardboard with leaves and mulch.
The long beds are 40 inches wide and 16 feet long. There are four sets of two with 20 inches between them. There are two sets on each side of the main axis with 52 inches between them. Eventually there will be arches over the 52 inch paths covered in climbing plants. These beds are going to hold beans and tomatoes this year. I am considering making a southern pea patch in another area using the no till method.
