    Pics are about 6 weeks old. Beans are running now. Already picked a mess of greens. Have brocille, cabbage, swiss chard and collards to set out yet. We are blessed with a long growing season here. Hope you enjoy the pics.

    Very nice! I'm stuck with just three 4'x4' beds, but hope to expand it next year. I'm limited to space, but with careful planning, I should be able to fit in about four more beds at 4'x4' and a couple of 2'x4' beds. I can't till and plant directly into the ground because the clay is too hard for the size tiller that will fit in the area, and a bigger tiller won't fit in the gate. :dunno:

    Thanks for sharing the pictures!

    Love 'em!!! You really got it going on!!

    I have 3 myself at home. Mine are 4x8 using 2x10s. You can raise a bunch of food in them. Practicing sq ft garden makes good sense when space is limited.

    Love the pictures!!!

    My garden is all but done, except for the cotton and some cool weather crops. The land (most of it) has been turned and winter wheat is down. (and starting to come up.)
