Here are some photos of my garden from Memorial Day weekend.

The 4 x 8 raised bed growing boxes were built because the underground cables to our house all pass over that spot. Rather than just growing grass since we couldn't dig down, we decided to grow above the soil level with raised beds.
We have been eating greens out of our garden for about two months, since we covered the raised beds with plastic in March to warm them. Last year, we had fresh greens from the same beds in November. We hope to extend our season as much as possible.
