Mom's Vegetable Garden

My mom has a small vegetable garden now that all of us kids are gone. She is expanding it a little each year, she took a few years off from growing vegetables, but now she's back in full force. Those are potatoes in the big bins in the back and the raised bed in the back is filled with strawberries. In the middle she has: tomatoes, peppers, beets, peas, herbs, lettuce, and spinach. The newly tilled section is where we're going to plant some strawberry popcorn.

    I'm starting a small (8x8) garden and I hope mine looks this good this year!

    paix120: it should since you're starting small. I'd recommend using straw in the walkways and between plants to keep weeds down, it's a hug help. It also helps the soil retain more moisture so you don't have to water as much.

    Yeah I have put down some straw-like twigs from my backyard, but once the plants start growing I'll probably mulch.
