Peek At Our Vegetable Garden

May 12, 2015

Finding a sunny spot for our vegetable garden was a challenge for Rita and I at our home here in Georgia.  (We do appreciate all our abundant shady spots in August!)  Since we had to locate our vegetables on a small hill, we created three tiers of raised beds.  We also grow veggies in containers on our deck.

We are especially pleased with the improvement in our soil texture. Our great soil is the result of mixing Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Garden Soil into our red Georgia clay every time we planted over the past few years.  This year we used a new product we like a lot:  Miracle-Gro Nature’s Care Organic Garden Soil with Water Conserve.  We feed our plants Miracle-Gro Nature’s Care Plant Food.  We use ground up leaves as our mulch.

We have been picking our spinach, lettuce, arugula, peas and kale for some time and they are about done as the weather is heating up.  We will soon start enjoying our potatoes, onions, tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers and beans.  Here are a few pictures I took this morning.
