Tina's Garden

It is really unfair to call it "Tina's Garden" since she has had so much help from Tony and Sara and Jesse in making it.  However, the vision is Tina's and I am thinking about kidnapping her and having her design my garden for me.
You can see the greenhouse and fence that Tony (with Jesse's help) built last fall to protect the garden from the deer, moose, and assorted other animals that live in the woods surrounding the garden.  It is still a work in progress - you can see a new raised bed that they built along the fence line for trellising crops like beans and peas next year.
The chicken yard sits in one corner, with a small orchard on this side of the fenced in area.
Raised beds and mulch allow for maximum weed control and minimum watering requirements.
