Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

New raised Beds

With the fence installed around the new garden area I was able to order
blueberry bushes and more raised beds. The bushes came on Friday and were planted that day. The raised beds were assembled with major help from Dan on Saturday. This afternoon I filled one of the beds and planted mesculun, spinach and arugula.


One of the blueberry bushes.


Blueberry bushes are on the east side of the garden (along the fence).


Green beans are forming.


Looking north, blueberries to the right. Eventually the paths will be mulched.



First of the new beds to be filled. It could have used more soil but I ran out of bags. I'll get more next weekend for the other beds and wait until spring to add more to this first one.

Your new beds look great inside the fence and the blueberry bushes are bigger than I thought they'd be.

Your garden looks excellent. Definitely nothing better then home grown veggies & fruit.
