Our Raised Beds
These pictures are outdated at this point but here's an idea of what we have planted in the raised beds behind our unit. The largest one closest to the house contains most of my tomatoes, all of my peppers, some cucumbers and bush beans. I'm not growing nearly as many tomatoes as I used to but I still think that we'll have enough to suit our needs.
I was hoping that, like the slugs, the cucumber beetles here would not be as bad as they were at the old garden. Unfortunately, they are even WORSE and it'll be interesting to see whether I'll be able to get a decent cucumber harvest this year.
I also have some container tomatoes this years. Orange Blossom is the lone early determinate tomato I'm growing this year. I figured it would be best suited for container growing.
In addition to these, we have melons and zucchini planted behind our house. And as the spring greens and veggies clear out, I'll plant our falls veggies starting in late July.
