used to do a fairly big garden when the kids were still home. then I went to just growing some tomatoes and peppers in pots. Was not happy at all with last years pot garden as it all went to pot with hust a couple of tomatoes and now peppers at all.
Decided to try a raised bed this year a little 4;x8'x8" one.
I filled it with dirt from the woods added no lime of fertilizer either. Green house near by put plants on sale for 1.29 each. I got 6 tomatoes all different varieties one being grape, a cherry one, a purple one (new one for me.) a steak one and 2 early girls. 4 pepper plants all mild sweet ones for my tender tummy. two summer yellow squash and 4 egg plants which are new for me. Never did egg plants before so not sure they are doing good or not.
Tomatoes and squash went nuts. Got some new cages that are 44" and they are close to 24" above that. Squash isn't running for some reason so I tied them back to give room for the egg plant and trimmed some leaves for sun to get to the egg plant.
Going to make at lease one more next year and maybe even a couple.
