Hi Janet, Sparkles & O&A, so glad you stopped by & thanks for your comments & questions. The boardwalk is working well. With the hay bale raised beds we're still having some trouble with bugs & birds, & maybe some kind of small critters, as some produce is disappearing or being damaged. So far we have radishes, 2 kinds of cukes & lettuce that is growing pretty well. One problem we think is that right now our seeds have been planted in potting soil amended with fertilizer, but no compost or mulch mixed in. So next year we will mix in hay from this year's bales to help with that. "It's a work in progress" is one of my Hubby's favorite sayings, & it really fits here, LOL! I planted some sunflowers in an old tire outside of the garden fence. They were devoured by deer, but now there are some leaves sprouting at the tops of those stalks, so we will see! We planted more sunflowers inside the garden wall behind the strawberries, & they are doing very well so far. We won't see any flowers for another month or so, but we're hoping! Sparkles, you're right, looks like our little Sophia might be checking out a bug, LOL!
Plywood looks good. So how are the hay bales doing? We tried them once and it was a disaster. Nothing from them.
great idea xxx i spy a little dogie too xxxx many hugs
That's a great idea Gina, I hope it works well for you. That's why you have the boardwalks down too. Hugs my friend ♥
Thank you for your comment, Roseh. We try to keep the weeds down, but we both have disabilities & can't do a lot of physical labor needed for regular gardening, weeding, etc. So we're growing our garden in potting soil on top of hay bales.
Mulching between the raised bed makes the garden look neater and no grass or weeds to worry about.
