Look at what my honey built. This is our new structure for our third kick at the can. Kevin is determined to grow potatoes. We actually have one potato plant growing way in the far end bed... where we were growing them last year. I guess it's a slow 'spouter'. We know to rotate, so even though we have a lonesome plant growing on its own, Kevin prepared a completely different bed, created a box, added new soil, compost and topped the lot with dry leaves. Now we water regularly and wait. Fingers crossed that third time is a charm.
I also planted a bunch of seeds in little pots. Last week, we bought potting soil to give our seeds a fighting chance. I planted flowers, different types of vegetables and then some herbs in my kitchen garden (the old hot tub).
There's still a few summer months left: we're hoping we can harvest a good crop before there's too much humidity in the air. It sure would be nice if we could eat our own vegetables on a more regular basis.
