My daughter and I gathering garlic, raspberries, and blackberries from the backyard garden.  I had a late start on my tomatoes, but the corn is well beyond, "knee high by July".

Pole beans, the last 2 years I found purple ones, they were very prolific.

Great pictures of your old garden Vicky, it will be again, not this year, but maybe the next. What did you have growing on the trellis over the window. Thats a really good idea for my climate, shade from the sun as well as space saving. Finished growing when you want the sun to come inside.

These are old pics. Been too busy moving and trying to get the old 5 acre farm livable again before I can have a nice veg garden again. It will be much bigger than the little back city yard I had for the past 10 years. The pics you are looking at used to be 2 locust trees, lava rock, bricks and a bit of grass when I moved there.

Thanks everyone. These beds ar 4 x 4 and we have 5 of them. I posted photos on my page. They are new to us this year, so we are still figuring things out, methods, companion planting, etc. anyone have photos of their raised beds? I'd like to see them.

I read somewhere, long ago with bush beans that you should get em in, get em up, & get them off/out before disease sets in. ?

Poles beans you can plant 1-2" apart.

Fats if that is a one ft sq. I would put at least one toward each corner and one in the middle. Or just start at one end and shove a seed every 4" and stagger rows inside your sq. You can grow way more in a space than you think, I would probably have 9 plants in there. Beans are ok but stuff that may get mildews or fungus need more breathing room.

Curious as to how you are watering your bed and do you have lots more of those beds?

Keryn you can click on the pic to make it bigger he has 4 plants all along the back it looks like. You can barely see a stem of the far right.

I don,t know about bush beans, I grow climbing and butter beans which are a bush bean. Fats I,m glad you worked out the site. Is that tomatoes in the back , they could be a bit close together. I would have 2 tomato plants in a box that size. They all look very healthy.
