My Kentucky Garden Imag0013

This is my 2nd year doing SF gardening. I am having a lot of fun with it.

When I first started, I bought lumber from a local mill. I got 2x2 white oak for the trellis frames and 2x6 for the boxes. It was a lot cheaper than the metal frames in the book. I cut some stakes from cedar and used those to keep the boards from moving around.

The trellis frames are zip tied to t-posts. By putting one every other 4' section, you can reach around to plant, pick and pull weeds.

This year I added 75' soaker hoses. They are buried about 4" down and go the length of my 4' x 24' boxes. It starts at 1' and then comes up at 2' and back down at the three foot mark (if that makes sense). I can turn on the water and do all three boxes at once.

Lots of tomatoes (Hillbilly, cherry and Jet Star), several kinds of lettuce, broccoli, corn, potatoes, and several herbs.

Looks beautiful! My Kentucky Garden Icon_biggrin I like the idea of the soaker hoses. That must free up a ton of your time.

I like the soaker hose idea !!! Thats excellent. I love the chairs at the end of the garden and the view you have, just beautiful !! The garden is the best place for me to sit and think. I like that you have more than one chair, it means you get visitors Smile I need more chairs.

Thanks all for the compliments. All I did to deserve this view was draw a breath... this piece of land has been in my family since a Revolutionary War officer got a land grant in 1786.

Thanks to Mel for showing me how to garden and enjoy it. Before that it was just a lot of work and sweat.

Here is actually a better picture of my first two beds and the trellis frames.
