Raised Bed Garden 2015 First Update


Its been about a month now since we planted our garden and its coming along, though not as fast as I’d like.

We ran a soaker hose strategically through the garden to make sure everything would get the water it needs. Afterwards we added some mulch to help keep the weeds down. The lettuce and broccoli are doing very well and have outpaced everything else growth wise. Everything feels so empty and I have this urge to plant more but wife is adamant that we already probably have too much. Shes probably right.

I’ve also picked up some berry bushes.  I bought a Blackberry, Blueberry, Red Raspberry, and ordered 3 Black Raspberry bushes online.  Our girls really like fresh berries so I’m very excited for them to be able to pick them when the time comes.  An interesting note, apparently Red and Black Raspberry’s don’t play well together so you have to keep them at least 75ft apart.
