Stephen, very tidy! What are the measurements for each bed?
Wow Stephen - those raised beds are awesome - you must get quite a yield with all that garden space!
yay..., spring is starting to sprung. last year this time three was two feet of snow on the ground. This year back to a somewhat regular type of season. raised-beds are warming nicely, so all the early spring items got in this weekend. with any luck, all will be kinda normal this year.
Diane, I traded tutoring a student who had trouble learning with yard work. I was able to go out and supervise and point my finger to the tasks that needed attention. He got free tutoring and passed his exit exam. It was a match made in heaven. Offer a service for help in the garden.
Yes Lissa I have all raised beds for my vegetables and also use a lot of large containers especially for fingerling potatoes and some other veggies. My perennial gardens are of course not raised but are well mulched.
Also do you have raised beds Diane? They make for a lot less weeding!
Diane - you might try square foot gardening as you don't have to do any thinning - I loved that part of it last year - my carrots, radishes, lettuce, spinach, etc. were already perfectly spaced with the right amount of room to grow! My sister is having thumb surgery to but luckily on her right hand and she is left-handed. I am sure I will be helping her out with some of her gardening! Good luck!
Sorry you have to go for surgery, and it's too bad they couldn't form the cast to fit the handle of the rake/hoe.
Vegetable gardening will be interesting this year, I am having joint replacement surgery on my right thumb on Tuesday and will therefore be in a cast of some sort until at least June. To say that I am awkward with my left hand it putting it mildly. I have gotten all my beds as ready as I can (it's snowing lightly) during good weather days and will rely on buying starts. I generally do a lot of direct sowing but I can't imagine thinning at this point. My main concern is hoeing or raking with one hand which will be a challenge. Got any suggestions? I have 2 acres of perennials and fruits/vegetables.
Your beds are lovely,Bob. Thanks, those containers are like little mini greenhouses with holes already in them :)
