My Vegetable Garden

Each year I enjoy working in my vegetable garden. It is just large enough to give me the variety that we like. I've tried to design it in a manner that enables me to not only rework it each year, but to maintain it throughout the growing season. The photos are from two different years. I prepare the ground by cultivating it with a tiller. I then add miracle grow dirt and mix it in, and I use Miracle Grow Liquid Fertilizer. I do this each year. The landscape logs are two high so I can keep adding dirt. I'm also working with Georgia clay. The mulch allows me easy access to the plants and helps keep the weeds under control. I have the water connected to my sprinkler system. I also use a portable sprinkler at times.

    Such a nicely laid out vegetable garden, Jim. You comment that your tomatoes do better with more shade is interesting. How much sun do they get there?

    Great garden. The only veggie I grow is I spread mustard seed in the flower bed in the fall. We love mustard greens! I have a heck of a time keeping the leaves from blowing into them, but it works out! I regret I did not get his done this year...we sure missed the mustard!
