So I started my garden about a month ago.. With 3 (4’x4’x8″) raised cedar garden beds (no leeching of pressure treated wood chemicals into my soil!), some, organic garden soil, organic soil conditioner with a high humus content, and peat moss mixed into some of my existing, very clay-like soil.  I also fixed up my original flower bed that’s about 5’x5′ and have some smaller garden boxes along side my house and deck containing various flowers / plants / edibles.

I’ve only planted a few things so far but I started a lot of seeds indoors and plan to buy a few more plants to round out the gardens.  I still need cucumbers, chili peppers and jalapenos, kale/swiss chard (might be too late though..) and yellow squash. I’ll update every now and then but here’s what I’ve got so far.

I’ve also been gifted two blueberry bushes 🙂 of different varieties for better pollination, and I have a raspberry bush I bought.  As of yet I can’t figure out where to put them.. in the front yard where I have space but hoodlums can steal my berries?? OR in the back yard where I’m pretty much out of sunny spots to plant.. HM!!
