I been working my Rear off making this new SFG area outside my back door.
Had to show a pic------even though only half of it in pic.

Yes, it has carpet. I want concrete patio. Until then---carpet keeps the mud off my shoes and keeps down the grass.

all my turnip green seeds did not germinate------I also only put one per spot and they are old seeds. I had to sow more turnip green seeds. That's what I get for not thinking.

The .. "why didn't I pick up the SFG book sooner" garden (everything there would have fit in one 4 x 4' SFG with 2 spots left over);




The SFG 4 x 4 in week 3;

Thank you ....hopefully it will pacify the HOA police & they won't pick on the SFG box.

I actually had to reconfigure it ...HOA did like my night time working lights, so I added the angled pots that you see on each end & wired the floodlights inside the container so that they can't be seen.

Carolyn.. I'm intrigued with your concrete block design. Did you just stack them up or are they mortered?? That makes a very attractive bed!!

I leveled the ground for the first layer of blocks and just stacked the rest on.

Plans are to pressure wash the blocks off and paint them white.
The Hoop Salad Bed that has the Covered Wagon feature
will also be painted and will paint some wheels on the side of blocks..

bounce


I am not crazy about the strawberry pyramid. I wish it were two blocks high for
each level. Thinking about redoing it before the strawberries are too far along on rooting.
They were just showing new growth too but I have plenty of strawberry
transplanting time left.
