Getting somewhere....

Post  avafarm on 5/14/2012, 3:22 pm

just thought i would share pictures of how the garden is coming along.
just getting everything planted













still a lot more boxes to fill, but slowly but surely it getting done. i did not know about MM so i will have to mix it up and add it to the organic topsoil already in the beds. well i hope we get a good yield this year!

Looking good! Just so you know if you fill your other boxes with Mel's mix you only need the top 6" to be MM!

I started my beds that high to begin with so my mother could help me garden in her wheelchair.
I filled the bottom with branches and stumps and then put cardboard and fabric down on top of that and put my soil on top of that (it was my way of saving on dirt)
It certainly looks like someone has done a wonderful job on the boxes.

Wow!!! Those boxes look amazing..... You are making great progress. What are you going to be planting in the deep boxes? You should have allot of veggies once you fill all those boxes. Keep us updated with pictures, we all love pictures.
