|Three of the side yard 4'x4' raised beds have covered wagon-style frames|
made out of PVC pipe that enable larger plants, such as broccoli,
to grow unhindered. I built them a few years ago and they have
held up very well.
|The peas and Swiss chard were transplanted yesterday. They are perking|
up despite the fact that they were becoming root bound.
|Broccoli happy in their covered home.|
|Cauliflower looking strong and healthy.|
|The prize of the garden. My seven-year-old son planted |
these beans at school. He's so proud of them.
When I was talking to him about the beans yesterday, he emphatically said
"Mom, it's not just a bean - it's a broad bean!"
