Garden to table 2013

Welcome back to the Garden to table blog.
Once again I hope to inform you about what we grow in our garden throughout the summer and fall.
The biggest change in the garden is the layout. during the winter, I constructed 6 raised beds  with 2X10's that measure 9 feet by 3 feet. I used the early spring to place them in the sunniest part of the garden, till the soil and then fill them with at least 6 inches of new soil. There are 12 tomato plants in each bed. I'm excited to see if he raised beds increase the harvest.
We also built a trellis for the pole beans and that seems to be working well.
Because of our unusually cool spring. our harvest is at least two weeks behind but we are beginning to pick peppers bell, jalapeƱo and banana, cucumbers, egg plant, raspberries, and cherry tomatoes. The green beans will be ready in abundance this week and the corn looks close also.
Thanks for reading and feel free to comment.
