Jam season already....
The 4x4 bed is up at the front of the house where it gets a bit more sun. I call it the pumpkin bed, because that is what I usually plant in it. They take over the rest of the garden otherwise. Some years they do really well, others, not so much. It does depend on the weather, the aggressiveness of the choocks, and I think maybe the enthusiasm that the township has for spraying weeds in the ditches.
The raised beds have tomatoes, peppers, zuchinni, turnips, carrots, beans, kale, chard and salad greens. Two more will go in next year, behind these ones. The second garden has my Madder patch, rhubarb, winter onions and blackberries. These are all perennials, so a somewhat permanent placement in the garden. The part we tilled in has potatoes planted. That is another crop which has been weather and chicken dependent.
