my brother in law david (stacy's husband)
had this idea to plant a (large) organic fruit and vegetable garden in our backyard.
it sits behind my house...and is still in the early stages (some fruit trees have been planted around it already... apple, pear, plum, peach and cherry)
the view from the back of my house looking where the garden will be.
framing the garden.
here is the soil.
separate raised beds for each fruit/vegetable.
look at all those beds!
and david has been planting the seedlings in their basement...
we are planting the following:
artichokes, arugula, asparagus, beets, broccoli, broccoli raab, broccoli romanesco, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, corn, cucumber, eggplant, endive, fennel, garlic, lettuce, onion, parsely, peas, peppers, potatoes, raddichio, scallions, soybeans, spinach, squash, sweet potatoes, string beans, tomatoes (lots of varieties), zucchini, figs, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, watermelon, and honeydew.
plus we are also planting several herbs.
we are so excited about this garden (thanks david!!!)
it will be all the produce our families need...right in our backyard.
although we do have help to tend to the garden, we are all participating. and the kids will pitch in too...whether they'd like to or not!
