I’m gonna need a bigger backyard.

in Garden


I’ve gotten really good at cramming too much stuff into too little a space, having had to lay on the bed to get my jeans to zip for the last couple of weeks. But even then, I’m hardly a miracle worker. And I’ve completely maxed out my 8×4 raised garden bed.

The carrots and non-tomato-bug-repelling herbs have already been exiled to pots. I see only one solution: knock down the fence and take the neighbor’s backyard by force.

Jason sees another: stop trying to hoard the state’s supply of tomato seeds.

Sometimes I’m not sure how we stay married.

Ha, you need to go vertical!

Oooh, I’d love to see everything labeled! Not doing a garden this year, but trying to gather ideas for next year!

If you plant that volume of zucchini along the fence line, you probably will invade the neighbors yard. Just an observation, of course.

Looks like that’s gonna be a major project! Well worth it, though, when you reap the fruits of your labor this summer!

I am trying out ‘smart pots’ in my small city FRONT YARD this spring. Last year I planted a cornfield on my 4 x 8 plot of land… unfortunately I either (a) planted them too close together (b) left them on the stalk too long -or- (c) didn’t get enough sun due to neighbor’s and the association’s trees in the greenbelt. I will plant an experimental vegetable garden this year using the cloth pots… I can move them around (maybe onto the communal walkway??) if I need more sun… heh… love the map of your raised garden bed!

Can you show us labels for everything planted?
