Garden update

This year I switched up my garden. This time in tires as well as the 3 Sisters Plot.

I used big tractor tires for carrots, dill, peas, & cucumbers.  I put a big old metal spoked tire on top so that my dogs don’t get in there and dig.  I’ll take them off the peas & cucumbers when they start growing and make a tipi to let them climb on.  Not much is growing yet.

Rather than fight to much with the weeds & roots left over from last year I opted to just dump nice aged horse/cow manure and plant directly into that.  Rows of corn + beans & rows of zucchini + sunflowers.  There was many 16Lbuckets of manure hauled and dumped. A good workout for sure.

I even have a small pot for lettuce!

Crossing my fingers that I have a successful garden. If not – well the Hutterites at Green Leaf Colony always has veggies!
