Raised Beds & Herbs, Aug. 2019

Just a few quick photos for now, to show the progress these last few months. See my previous post for more details about the plants featured in my beds this year!

More info & links on all these plants to follow soon. I will find some time next month to write about all the great plants that grew in my garden this year. Also working on a post about my Shade Evergreen garden. I planted it this year, in the super shady front yard.

2019 Raised Beds

I planted only two raised beds this year due to time constraints. Some of the pics are from April at planting time, and I am including new pictures from the end of June to show how much growth has happened over the last month and half.

Repair and planting of the beds April 20th 2019

I planted some Bonnie plants from six packs along with some seeds that I bought, or already had. Bed #1 has Bonnie Jalapeno, Bonnie Homestead Toms, and Bonnie Yellow Bell Peppers. See links to those three below. I also planted for the first time Jalafuego plants from Papa Joe’s Naturally Grown line from Sunbelt Greenhouses in Douglas, GA.

I did a soil test and realized I was totally nitrogen deficient in the beds. I fertilized with an Organic fertilizer from Espoma called PlantTone about a week ago, and am seeing very good results. Updates to follow soon.

Next post will be about planting my Dad’s Memorial Garden in North Carolina.
