Because someone asked to see the raised beds in relation to the fence, I’ve tried to get photos that show that but when I look at the photos, I confuse myself so I doubt I’m giving any real insight into anything.
I’m going to guess our south property line (I was facing south when I took this photo) goes about 60′ beyond the fence line but that’s a guess.
As far as the veggies, you can see the sweet potato vine extending from the straw bales. Half the bale went north and half went south so the right half is hanging over into the raised bed, which is where I planted beets so I’m not real happy about that but . . the vine seems to have a mind of its own. In the right end of that raised bed is where I transplanted the brussels sprouts. The next raised bed has jalapeno peppers. The last one back has asparagus. You probably can’t see but the fartherest raised bed on the left has more sweet potatoes. The next one coming forward has eggplant, the next one has bell peppers and the last one, that you can’t see has walking onions.
I left the wheel barrow there for perspective also. It’s funny because Vince and I both said we always considered that line of trees and shrubs (to the right of the photo) to be very near the back property line but we actually have about 8 – 10 feet behind those trees.
See the big pine of some kind? Here’s another picture of it.
It’s so huge and we rarely went past it so in our minds, the property kinda ended at that tree but there’s a good bit past there.
I guess I could have cropped out that piece or whatever is in the photo!
There’s plenty of room to put more raised beds over here on this side. After you go around that tree, there’s probably 30 or 40 feet more of yard before you get to the edge of the house. This is a picture of yesterday that shows it.
Going back around to the south . .
I’m really close to the north fence line when I took this picture. You can see the red wheel barrow I showed earlier, the raised beds, the shop, one end of the solar panels, the covered porch we built last year.
That’s about the best I can do . . no more pictures unless Vince gets out a drone and takes some for me and . . I wouldn’t hold my breath on that.
