Filled and ready

My "garden" consists of several raised beds and containers scattered around the property, but none are more important than the one that is closest to the road. At 4 ft wide, 25 ft long, and 14 inches deep, one will be surprised at the annual yield that can be acquired from it if intensive planting measures are followed.

With 4 trellises attached throughout, vertical crops increase the yields that much more.....
A typical planting for this one raised bed will be:

6 squash plants
4 watermelons
16 ft row of pole beans
20 okra
16 corn
8 peppers

I know it sounds like a lot for the space, but you'll just have to see it to believe it.......I do it every year. Lol.

Anyway, the bed is topped off with fresh compost, and ready for this years planting......I can't wait.
