I'm making great progress converting the rest of my backyard into a garden thanks to the help of my best friend Jim. Structurally, all we have to do is set the last of the 6 new raised beds down on a stone foundation, and we are going to do that tomorrow!
Chard, lettuce, collards, cauliflower and cabbage seedlings in the ground.
I made my first hoop tunnel, which is covering the cabbage and cauliflower.
I transplanted a rhubarb plant from the fence near the alley into its own section of a raised bed and it is going to thrive there. I mentioned that I got the rhubarb plant from an old homestead site at the Scuppernong Springs Nature Trail
We had tried to squeeze in a little strawberry patch into the old garden space and they were not in a good location. Now I have them spread across 1/2 of a raised bed and they are doing great. Can't wait to make some strawberry rhubarb pie.
Here is a timeline of My Garden Shire Project.
