This picture shows the two raised beds we added this year. The vines on the ground in front are from a nearby Venus grape bush that I need to stake up soon. The bed has tomatoes planted in it with sunflowers at the front. Clearly I need to weed a little, but the weeds are smaller than they look.
The picture below is a closer pic of the one in the back. It also has tomatoes in it with sunflowers and I added some lilies to it that needed to be planted.
I will be needing to get the tomatoes staked up soon as the last rain we had weighed them down. I can not wait to watch this grow. I'll will keep you posted.
About eight years ago Hurricane Rita came over our house and knocked down a privacy fence that divided our property and we stacked all the wood up. We have used it a little at a time for some random things.... a tree house, raised beds, etc.. So, save that old wood. You never know what you might need it for.
