The Big Veg
So I had a request for more photos of the whole veggie garden. Here are a few. In the top photo you can see the dwarf peach tree in the bottom left corner, then zucchini, corn, pumpkins, marigolds, a row of dill, a crazy bean tripod my husband rigged on near the top far right, a real eagle eye could see my daughter tormenting the chickens in the very back.
This is the garden view from the other side, chard, artichoke, onions, herbs, and lemon cucumbers under the white trellis.
Right in front of the chicken tractor you can see the little orange tree and the established tree further back is the lemon tree. In the front is another view of the herbs and artichoke. You can also see our rain barrels. We are planting lilies in front to eventually cover them up a bit.
Here's a side view of about half- you can see the strawberries in front. We also started mulching some of the paths. Last week I rang a neighbors doorbell and asked if they used chemicals on their lawn because they had a bunch of bagged leaves on the curb. What with the chickens, and walking my dog wearing my baby and inquiring about lawn practices before taking "trash"- I don't think I can get weirder to my neighbors.
