Kay, the big reveal… or something like that.
In truth, they’re a little out of control. And I was really hoping to wait for the sunflowers to bloom before I posted pictures, but who knows how long that will really take. And actually, the tomato plants are so tall they’re blocking the sunflowers anyway.
In order to satisfy everyone’s before/after fix for the day, here we go:
It was quite a daunting project, as you can see. This thicket of weeds was the remnants of our garden last year. Let’s just say it went a little untended with the wedding the the trip to Australia and the holidays and everything.
Notice how we actually have to move the dirt mound on the right before we can put the other 2 beds in.
Oh, they were so cute back then.
I found out quickly that the squash/cucumber trellis wasn’t tall enough so I tied a few extra pieces of wood along each side.
The current jungle state. That’s patty pan, butternut, japanese cucumber, zinnas, radish, tomatos, basil (and probably more) all tangled together.
Out. of. control.
