Raised Bed Garden--Week Five

 So far, our raised beds have been a huge success!

Picking (and eating!) our very first strawberry was very, very rewarding!

Since things have been going well, I decided to "expand."  Meaning, I connected what was two seperate beds with a new bed.

I hope what I planted there (dahlias, zinnias, and more broccoli and lettuce) proves to be successful as well.

The lettuce is doing GREAT! I wish I'd known before now how easy it is to grow your own.  We have several beds of it, and they are currently FULL of lettuce, ready to eat!

The broccoli is growing by leaps and bounds.

And so are the green beans!

 The squash I planted has finally come up nice and sturdy.  It is planted in an old rubbermaid drawer we didn't need.  I just drilled some holes in the bottom and filled it with dirt!

Grow, garden, grow!

I'm linking to KISS!
