I had the opportunity to tour a friend’s garden this weekend. The experience has me dreaming about rows of garden beds.
Agribond over hoops cover a row of tomatoes started in January in their sun room. Onions planted in the fall were wintered over in a double covering of agribond and greenhouse plastic. There are beautiful rows of squash, peas, cabbages, corn, and greens with pea gravel walkways between.
Peas, beans, garlic, lettuce, leeks, and more squash.
Boardwalks lead from one garden to a series of raised beds mixed with flowers and herbs. The yard is littered with apple trees, a mulberry tree, and grapevines.
I’ve got a vision, now I need to come up with a plan. I’m in garden lust!
