My garden Journey

"Ogres have layers, Onions have layers."


Guess what? Gardens do too!

How it Started

Two large raised garden beds with a dead tomato plant in-between.

November 2021

Nutrient-deficient raised beds, featuring an overgrown rotten tomato plant in the center. No mulch or additional protection from the winter elements, invasive weeds growing in and around the raised beds.

(Don't even get me started on how bad the grass was!)

How It's Going

August 2023

Healthy amended garden soil topped with natural bark mulch for added moisture retention and protection from the elements. 

This year, I installed an automated drip system to ensure my plants are consistently watered throughout the summer.

Produce I'm Growing This Season

General: Raspberries, Sweet Basil, Icebox Watermelons, Yellow Onions, Chives, Parisian Market Carrots, Romaine Lettuce, Brussel Sprouts, Pineapple Sage, and Mini Pumpkins

Tomato Varieties: Sunrise Bumble Bee, Heirloom Pear, and Red Paste

Pepper Varieties: California Golden Wonder, Sweet Gypsy, Sweet Banana, Sweet Shishito, Poblano, Jalapeño, Cajun Belle, and Red/Orange Lunchbox

My second large raised garden bed features a variety of peppers, sunflowers, marigolds, and other companion plants.

I've also added a new cattle panel arched trellis this year to increase my vertical growing space and add some much-needed shade cover to the smaller raised bed.
