Summer weather is embracing PNW, we are seeing 70s and occasional 80s (Yes, that’s height of summer!). My shade garden is in production mode.
I need more space to transplant tomatoes and maybe some squash plants. Just beyond one of the vegetable beds, there is some space that I may use. I am going to try to build a temporary bed over there. Here are some of the efforts –
Step 1 – define perimeter and set up wood planks
Step 2 – Define the temporary space to build vegetable bed. Dig.. Dig .. Dig
Step 3 – Gather and throw away rocks, roots etc and remove.
Step 4 – Mix in compost, potting soil, manure etc
Step 5 – Transplant, sow something… Below is picture of same space in 10 days.
Tomato transplants, squash plants, fenugreek, cucumbers and garbanzo beans growing here.
This is still work in progress, I am planning to plant cucumbers, tomatoes, squash in here. Hopefully I can post updated photo with actual veggies growing in here…
