Here's what's going on in other parts of the Trailer Park Homestead! There's so much here, I thought about dividing it into two posts! Then I realized I wanted to show off all this cool stuff sooner rather than later, so tomorrow will be something else.
|This is the view from my back door, looking slightly toward the garage. The brick "wall" is the border of my lot.|
|This is the back square foot gardening box. After much neglect while I was trying to get in the remaining beds, I finally caught up on the weeding and tying up the peas yesterday.|
|I'm having to add a considerable amount of compost to the potato condo daily. I probably should look into finding more, since I'm about out!|
|My "St. Patrick's Day" bed was also much neglected, but caught up for the moment. Now that the spinach is bolting, I probably will pull it and stick some sunflower seeds in their place.|
|Berry bushes are looking good. One of the blueberry bushes even looks like it's thinking about giving me some berries soon!|
|All three sisters are up now. I'm a bit worried that the beans are shooting up so fast, since the corn isn't nearly high enough for them to wrap around yet.|
|A close up of the kinds of things growing in the bricked border area--blue jade corn, sunflowers, and a variety of vining things (squashes, pumpkins, cucumbers, or melons) will be forming a complex living wall once it grows up.|
