Food is plentiful in my Community Vegie Patch and it is hard to believe it was less than a year ago it was a struggle to get growth from a dead soil.
The lessons we were taught of continually building up the soil with mulch, compost, worm droppings, and my favorite shredded cow manure have renewed the soil so quickly.
Now the garden patches are alive with quality food..
In my own patch I have added height as a dimension to get extra yield and also protect and shade new plantings. The snow peas and cherry tomatoes intermingle on the constructions.
Here you see broccoli, lettuce, broccoletti, kale and brussel sprouts among the plantings. The basil in the front is apple basil which is really delicious and grows so easily.
This view included parsley, strawberries and lavender to deter pests with its fragrance. The computer discs ward off crows.
