I also find that with the raised beds, I have more space than having just one big piece of plot. I have so many things planted in them.
From left to right -
Bed #1 - Empty. Garlic to be planted.
Bed #2 - Okra, Eggplants, bush beans, 2 tomato plants, chili peppers, banana peppers, bell peppers
Bed #3- Kale, Swiss chard, bush beans, carrots.
Bed #4 - Peas, orange beets, Red sails letuce, fenugreek leaves, radishes, turnips, cilantro.
The two pots (kept on the edges of raised bed) hold fenugreek seeds (planted). Earlier the pots were on the ground with a tray underneath, but I found a snake hiding. So I had to keep the pots from touching ground.
View from the deck - Garden #1
Garden #2 - Mostly tomatoes. Also Long beans on verical trellis.
Blackberry plants - the one in far corner has netting to cover berries.
Two Plum trees - Lost blossoms to frost this year.
Bitter Melon - 2 plants. Blossoms, no fruit yet!
