Hey there, gardening friends! Do you remember back in May when I shared this photo in a TGP post about Kelly’s garden before and after? She had sweetly emailed me to let me know that she had been inspired to try gardening again, but this time using raised beds and permanent paths for an easy care garden.
Well, a number of you commented that you’d like to see the beds all planted so Kelly took a few current pictures and sent them to me so that I could share with you all:
Ahhh…just makes your heart go pitter-patter, doesn’t it? So neat and tidy, green and growing! If you look closely on the left at the back, you will see she’s already added another bed – a strawberry bed. Kelly wrote, “boy, once you start, it IS hard to stop!“
But of course the most obvious addition (beyond the plants) is the second trellis that Kelly’s husband built. It’s her “bean house” and the beans at the bottom of it are already growing up. What a clever idea to combine pre-made trellises with a simple structure made from 1×2′s. And how fun to see the beans grow up to form a tunnel to walk through!
She counts her “Salad Garden” box as a huge success (though I think the entire garden is a huge success!) and writes, “Thank heavens green things don’t care if you know what you’re doing!”
I love how she ended her email, though. Reminds me that gardening can be fun (yes, sometimes I forget…):
I am so excited about my little garden. We have salad every night, and Littlest One just LOVES it because she grew it! Looking forward to green beans, corn, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, and onions as well!
Ready for another fun Garden Party?
