Before pic. We planted on the South side of our house.
We lined it with landscape fabric to prevent weeds.
We then filled it with horse manure compost we purchased from a local farmer and used kite string to make a grid.
Then this guy stopped by and had to check out every corner of the bed before flying off. Anyone know what it is? We figure it is in the moth family, but we have never seen one like this before.
Three kinds of tomatoes, acorn and summer squash, sweet peas, salad greens, radishes, cucumbers, eggplant, red and green bell peppers, onions, two kinds of hot peppers, rosemary, sage, cilantro, basil, chives, and lavender... Finished!
My neighbors are so generous and offered up some of their raspberry bushes. I plan on planting those to the right of the down spout later this week, and then installing a rain barrel to the right of the compost bin.
