Co Op Planting Day

For all my new readers, I wanted to introduce the McGatha Garden Co Op.

One Family One Garden is our motto.
We all work together to maintain the Garden and we all reap the benefits!
Visit Sue and Edd's Homestead here

Sue and Edd had the old Barn foundation cleared so we
could make another big bed and possibly get a Greenhouse??!!??



We got a yard and a half of good top soil / compost mix
to top off all the beds




Matt used a tiller to work the big beds
(Thanks for the use of the tiller's Roger!!)
 
 

Eric supervised.
Lookin' good Eric, Welcome to the Blog!




Let the planting begin!!


Potatoes.
All volunteer and transplanted from one of the big beds.



Peas
 
Partially Planted.

We got a few more items to get and
we are waiting to plant a few items in a couple weeks.
The Trellis' in the middle will be used for Melons
We are going vertical this year!



The new bed area by the old Barn Foundation.
We plan on planting Sunflowers, Watermelon, Pumpkins and Squash in this Bed



We also planted 3 Trees, a Blackberry Bush and some Strawberries today.
 
 


Ollie came to visit too!

Great idea to use the old foundation. I am sure you will have scrumptious veggies in no time!
