I promised pics, so here they are!

The garden spot before clearing the area, including the first snake of the season, right in the middle of the picture. YUCK!! affraid
My SFG in pics! Garden15

Area cleared, weed barrier layed, boxes built and placed.
My SFG in pics! Garden16

The compost tumbler we used to mix the MM, and my handsome hubby. Very Happy
My SFG in pics! Garden14

First box filled! (Almost... we added a little more to reach the top.)
My SFG in pics! Garden18

My boxes are just off my deck next to my koi pond, which holds 5 koi ranging from 7" to 24".
My SFG in pics! Garden19

Roma Tomatoes and a couple squares of marigolds.
My SFG in pics! Garden22

4 Jalapeno plants, 5 more Romas, a square of marigolds, and at the other end is where I sowed my corn.
My SFG in pics! Garden29

Cucumbers, a Brussel Sprout, a Basil, and the empty looking areas, contain Kentucky Blue Pole Beans, Sugar Snap Peas (an experiment), Lettuce, Spinach, and in the future Beets, Radishes, Japanese Long Onions (Naga Negi), and whatever else my little brain comes up with!

I'm really happy with how everything looks. Just hope it continues looking good and weed free. With the old method, I would be pulling weeds in the boxes already. Yay for MM!! cheers bounce

Happy Gardening!

Looks beautiful, Denise,

I like those brackets on the top corners of the boxes. Mine are on the inside.

Naturally you will show more pictures in a couple of weeks?

Yes, I'll post as things "pop through". Smile Hopefully, I'll have my grids by that time, as well. Still haven't decided what I'm gonna use. Just couldn't wait to plant! Laughing

Happy Gardening!

Beautiful! Everytime I see photos of these gardens, I want one just like it. Ha.

Did you start those plants from seeds, or buy transplants? They sure are green and healthy looking!

Thank you all for the compliments. I'm very pleased with them as well. I wish I could say I grew the plants from seed, but I can't. Hubby's been out of work on disability since Oct. and I wasn't sure he would be able to help me this year. He had surgery the first of May, and is now doing great! Hopefully, he'll be back to work next month.bounce Long story short, I purchased them from our local farmer's market. The guy I purchased them from said they were organically started. I hope to be able to start my own in the future. Smile

Cucumbers are growing nicely. I finally broke down and pinched out the extras. That is so hard to do. Sad But I know it's for the best.

Jalapenos don't seem to be doing much. Hopefully they'll start perking up soon.

Romas are growing happily! Smile
