I finally got the garden weeded. This year the garden is limited to 4 different varieties of tomatoes, Select 100 (cherry), Roma (paste), Marglobe (medium) and Best Boy (large). California Wonder Pepper (not in picture). Sumpter Cucumber (pickling) and Marketmore 76 cucumber. In the center of each cucumber hill is Mammoth Sunflower.

This year my garden is in transition, I am moving back away from the trees and going to raised beds. In between the boxes will be lawn hopefully.

I had a system something like this at my last home. Room in between the boxes for the lawnmower. It worked well. Too bad I don’t have the space here, or I certainly would be repeating it here.

I am lucky in that I own this place, 2 acres to play with. Next year, with the new greenhouse I am going to change the garden layout and the entire garden will be in boxes. I assume, I will still be challenged by the neighbors chickens, so the garden will be fenced in. Originally, I planned to mow between everything with my riding lawnmower, so will be spacing the boxes 6 feet apart. Have to rethink the fencing because of the chickens.

If I can get the greenhouse done before fall, I want to move some of my plants into the greenhouse. I am also thinking about growing tomatoes inside the house with grow-lights. The new T5 High Output Florescence fixtures are very promising, with almost no heat issues.
