Garden update

Despite the scarcity of rain my garden is growing decently. The produce is slowly increasing, but not much, and not a huge amount of variety. But little by little. And with lots of irrigation – which, I have to grump about, means spending five hours watering with a hose. A sprinkler system is getting pretty high on my list. But that is neither here nor there. So, progress in pictures:

We managed to get bed #4 (they are numbered by layout, not when plowed) prepared and planted:

This bed will be planted with raspberries come winter. Until then we planted melons and squash. Seedlings are just starting to poke up.

A third bed is just starting to be tilled.

We are inching along. With luck we’ll get all the intended beds prepared before winter rains stop any hope we have of preparing ground.
