my shady home garden

home garden
The boards between the vegetables patches are my new thing this year. They are slats from old pallets. They make good walkways. I used to just jump the 3.5 ft beds, but this year I find I am ending up stepping on plants instead of clearing the bed. I think the boards look nice.

I went ahead and uncovered my brassicas (no big deal - that's just the kale and broccoli in the center of the photo). I had them covered to avoid cabbage worms and flea beetles. I got tired of the look of the white row cover and the water doesn't get under the covers so well. Its nice to see all the garden greens.
