Growing local

Sorry for the sparse update. I've been having a devil of a time connecting my phone to my computer to share pictures. There's been more computer issues than that but that's computers in current year.

I filled my Birdies raised bed garden with soil and mixed in fertilizer on the advice from nursery staff. I *may* not have mixed it in well enough. Fingers crossed. 

Plants consist of Roma Tomato, Corn, Cucumber, Rosemary and Lavender (to keep fleas, ticks, flies, Mosquitoes and Moths away). 

Super excited and already planning the next raised bed.

Not pictured are my Black Sapote & Lemon tree. Both are getting weekly nutrients added (Not sure if that keeps them "organic".....)

Also I have a worm farm that I'm psyched about. I think I may have watched every worm farm video on YouTube.

In my experience, those beds breed mate.  Once you have one, the damn things start popping up all over the place.
