I'm so tried but ended the day with a lot getting done.

 

I like the RR ties, I need to find some. 

Talk to my mom and wife, we may do a raised garden up closer to the house in an area that gets more sun than the garden does. 

I wanna get some RR ties and make 3-4 decent beds. I like the look of yours probably only do mine in 4x8 or maybe even go skinnier so they can access from either side easily.

I'll be making my next batch about 3' these are a little two wide. The lower bed doesn't have dirt yet and I think I'm going to make in a little narrower before I fill it.

I'm still having issues with my hand but at least I can use it. I got three beds done. I used straight manure for the one I use for asparagus. That was a mistake. I bet I'll get a few hundred pounds from it next year.

I've got the shop almost painted. I really want to get at least the red done before winter.

We raised quail for a brief period. I didn't build their cages good enough. We ate them and turned their cages into the rabbit cages. All animals are in their winter home.

Not much meat but still tasty. Nothing better than eating an animal less than a hour after slaughtering it.

We have our strawberries up by the house in raised beds made with large tractor tires.  You loose some growing space with the inner part of the tire but it is still easy to reach the center.  Rest of the garden will be flat ground with drainage furrows all around.  Going to use the Brinly cultivator on a GT for the smaller crop and have a Gardener with cultivator for the taller ones.  After the crops are up and growing decent we use Preen in the rows to all but eliminate the weeding.  Lot of people don't like chemicals but it only effects the top 1" of soil and your crops are rooted way below that so I don't see where there is a problem.  Done it for years and still alive.

Still trying to clean this place up. The asparagus bed should start producing soon. I've got flowers in the 3rd bed and I've gotten enough done I even managed to get a low tunnel up on the 2nd bed. I noticed some sprouts already coming up but forgot which rows are which under there. I've got about half a days work moving a few things and some rough spots I need to level. Mowing season is here and to be honest I'm looking forward to some seat time.
