We are adding some things to our back yard garden this year. We got a ways to go to complete the projects but you gotta start somewhere!
2.See the cardboard by the fence? That is we are growing cucumbers this year. Plans are to throw down some dirt and compost. Put in a trellis and train the cucumber to grow up the trellis. We are trying White Cucumbers this year. They are supposed to have a crisp texture that is good for eating and pickling.
If this experiment goes well, we might add similar beds to grow squash, pumpkins and melons
3. The cardboard in the front of the picture marks where the new 4x8 raised bed is going.
In between this window will be a raised bed with an arbor for the white Niagara Grapes to grow on. We may not get to this project this year but it is on the to do list.
