Transition to SFG

Post  LauraRey on 6/19/2013, 10:59 am

I transitioned my old garden to a SFG this year.  It was a bit of work, but I'm pleased with the results to far!  Since the photos were taken, I've added five more gutters of strawberries.

Love how your maximized your space with the triangle.

Our first SFG was a raised bed that we converted.  Glad you're already enjoying SFG. You'll never look back.

I love the garden...and the triangle is a creative use of space and adds a little pizzazz to the area!! I might use that idea as we add on. Good luck with everthing! I look forward to seeing updates!

Holy Cow....the garden is growing.

Post  LauraRey on 7/3/2013, 11:06 pm

I can't believe how fast the garden has grown.  I've never had a garden grow this well.

Here are some updated photos in my blog: Garden

Really pretty, and I love the nice clean look that the woodchips gives you.
