Front yard raised bed
A new front yard raised bed for this year. Got off to a late start planting it however as construction lagged a bit. Mostly tomatoes, some peppers, oregano, thyme, and basil. Peppers are hopeless, probably went in a week or two too early and suffered cold damage, they never really grew, just went to bloom. Will do my own seedlings next year. A variety of tomatoes, both determinate and indeterminate. The indeterminate are growing at about 8" per week. Grow bed is 20' long, 4' wide, about 16" tall. 3-4 cubic yards of fresh triple mix amended with a bit of additional manure, 3" of mulch on top. Occasional fertilization of the whole bed. Touch wood, no pests so far this year, already setting lots of fruit.
