I did it!  I finally got all of my garden in.

I had built the beds over a period of four years, completing beds 12 through 15 this year.  I'm not building any more beds.  I want to go play with my art.

Here's all of the beds together. 


Cherokee purple tomato-this was a gift from a neighbor.


My garlic, in all its glory.  It's been growing since last October.


Lemon cucumbers-grown from seeds


Carola potatoes-also grown from starts.  We are trying these for the first time.


Strawberries.  Tri-stars.  These are also new this year.


Yellow onions.  We also winter grew these, since last October.


We have also planted ground cherries, cherokee red beans, yukon gold potatoes, saucy tomatoes, manitoba tomatoes, gold nugget tomatoes, and butternut squash.  Some of this from seed, so it's not up yet.

I love your raised beds!  And your garlic (and the rest of your plants) look awesome!

That is some serious work. I'm impressed! We've just started our very first garden. My brother in law is replacing his back deck, so we're hoping to use the old lumber to make some beds for next year.
