    Do you plant a vegetable garden?

    I started planting a raised bed garden two years ago. Now I look so forward to my first harvest (and so do my neighbors). I used railroad ties - two long, one deep - to make the shape, filled the bed with mulch, soil, and worms. This year - strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, peas, okra, zuchinni and yellow squash. I also have blueberries, grapes, blackberries and apples!

    Most definitely! Without one, we would not be able to keep our food budget at $50 a week for two adults!

    I have had a few gardens in my lifetime, but never enough to support my family. I have a very small yard and since I live on a steep hill, I get a lot of shadows and not much light. Someday when I get a bigger place, I want the "ultimate" garden so that I can share with anyone who needs it!

    I am growing seedlings now that will go into the garden in six to eight weeks. A dozen different tomatoes, peppers, squash, beans will be main crops. Early spring peas and salad greens, raddishes, scallions will start the garden season.

    Wow! You are making good use of that space, that's a lot of vegetables! My hubby and I have planted a garden every year for the past 25 years. Our garden plot is about 30 x 50 feet. We plant, onions, garlic, spinach, okra, green beans, black-eyed peas, cucumbers, (mainly for making pickles), squash, tomatoes, jalapenos, bell peppers and banana peppers. That is about all I can keep up with! Happy Gardening!
