Well the garden is finally finished! Those beds are here to stay! The plastic wood is very heavy and a full inch thick. I have 6 total 12 footers and 3 total 16 footers. That's 9 beds and 10 cubic yards of garden soil I had to haul. I'll add another 6 inches of Mel's mix come the fall as finances improve.
Here's what my beds used to look like.
|Three 6 foot beds to the right|
|Four 6 foot beds and Four 3 foot beds to the left.|
All the beds were made of salvaged fencing when my fence was blown down by hurricane Ike. After four years it was time to replace them and space them better. Ive also increased my garden square footage from 234 square feet to 360 square feet.
After I moved and straightened the fence this is how it turned out!
|My 12 footers to the left!|
|My 16 footers to the right.|
|Broccoli, Napa cabbage, and some root crops.|
|Blackberries and strawberries under them!|
|Green Peppers with marigolds to help repeal bugs.|
|Egg Plant on the close end. Basil at the other end of the front half. In the other half Jalapeno's, Serrano peppers, and Hungarian hot wax peppers.|
|In the back bed Tomatillo's in the front half. Slicing and cherry tomato's in the back half. The two closer beds both have Roma tomato's. My other two beds will have corn in them.|
