These are from the greenhouse and the backyard. Used strawbale beds and it took a lot of rabbit manure to 'neutralize' the pesticides and herbicides in the bales...but eventually they take off.

Not exactly a photo of the garden, but the layout thus far (the glasshouse still has to be built). We're on a suburban property in a neighborhood built on historic market gardens. All of the veggies are planted in raised beds. The fruit trees were planted bare-rooted, have been in the ground for only 4 months, and recently bloomed and grew leaves. No shots of the entire garden just yet, but some "close-ups" below.





And the one below is particularly old as all of the raised beds are now in place. Obviously needing to get out with the camera!

Pretty unusual to have such a green looking garden this late in the year at the Minnesota-North Dakota border.  Some of the record low temps for this time of year are below zero F.....lucky for us we've only seen teens a few nights.  With some tarps, we were able to squeak the kale through the cold snap.  The hammer will drop again in a few days or few weeks, but for now it's nice to be harvesting kale from the garden for Thanksgiving dinner.  Debating digging some sunchokes and parsnips as well for the meal.  The cold was enough to cover the river with ice, but it's thawed enough for the weekend.....maybe just enough time for a kayak trip or two before it closes up again.

Lots of great gardens. I definitely need to get off my keister and get some things rolling. The chicken prepping the dirt begins in April this next year.

A couple of years ago I made a raised bed out of an old cattle watering tank. It's 6' in diameter. I made the bed by layering sunflower stalks, manure, wood chip mulch, old hay, and a few bags of so-called organic topsoil from the nursery. Each year I would top off the bed with a half dozen new bags of soil from the nursery until the settling stopped. I built the bed in 2011. It's been 2 years since I added soil and everything is stabile right now. I have nice, dark, crumbly soil! In this image you see peas and jalapenos planted among the 'ollas' that I use for irrigation. The rail around the stock tank was to keep the cows from stepping in to cool their feet! I've found that it takes several years to build the soil in a new bed so be patient with your first few crops.

About to make some layout changes and add some fencing..... Looks a little bleak getting ready for the updates.  Ready for some tree pruning also.

2016 updates, spring, summer, and winter.

I probably went overboard with wrapping my bananas but they are out in the open and don't have a building or fence blocking the north wind so why not? The banana I had in the greenhouse froze close to death while these did fine. Lost several Lime Gold and Pereskiopsis plants do to the weather forecast being ~10 degrees above the actual temperature. All but about two of my Pineapple plants that I grow from tops are a lost cause as well.

Otherwise everything is growing great and all the cold weather crops that weren't under plastic covers bounced back, except one variety of mustard which seems to like being limp.

If I am successful with two banana plants then I'm clearing out several hundred feet of brush and trees between my garden and the larger field and planting a banana grove over it for privacy and profitability.

I posted this under spring before but I took a new picture from my table on the first day of spring because it is so glorious when I first look in there and see all those pink blooms.  in the background out the window is the top of the peach house.

How much cultivating can 3 chickens do?
How much seed can I get planted in 1/2 hour with a spring rake?

Just starting out a window garden before I move into a house with a backyard.

Left Side-(from left to right) mint sprouts, moss in bowl, (unkown)Cacti and rat-tail cacti.

Right Side-(from left to right) Garlic and unknown, bolted/bloomed cilantro, small lavender, jalapeno with cilantro under/around.

Not impressive but I'm happy with this start.

Early spring garden with chicken shed completely covered in perfumed climbers



Little wild corner with new supporting poles in chestnut



The Raspberries and Tayberries are on their way



The yellow Banksia rose in the oak, the gloriette keeping our root cellar cool and our handsome cockerel



Goat shed, duck shed, Wisteria, Mexican Orange blossom and Yukka on the path to the potager

With the PNW having the coldest wettest winter in recorded history, it's been a slow year on the annual vegetable front.  But, my comfrey is shoulder-height, so nearly five feet tall.   We're about to get some heat, so I imagine it is going to struggle at this size, so I'll chop it back. But, right now, how glorious it is!

I'm so excited to be a member of this forum. I just bought my home This past Summer 2016 and spent this winter cleaning up the wildness of the property trees and then burying the refuse (branches, leaves, weeds and grass clippings.) We went from this (the front pear tree had died):




To this just 1 year later:
I've added a small veggie garden (6ft x 18ft) built on top of Hugelkultur beds and planted fruit trees (peach, cherry, fig, citrus, plum, pear, apple, mulberry, grapevines, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries). In the process, I've mined up tons of TX limestone and made use of it as garden bed borders. The citrus trees will get protective coverings this winter with help from my pops. I've also put in irrigation.

Small but long Hugel beds:

Loxley Clovis,

how big is your chunk of land? I love the rainbow row concept and what it looks like in practice. What gave you the idea and how do you decide what gets planted next to what?

Thanks!
