Welcome to the 2009 Casual Gardener “Get It Garden” Challenge!! The challenge: create a garden that makes a difference in your life and your community, then share it with The Casual Gardener readers.
Part two of the vegetable garden planting involves planting a vegetable and herb garden off a hand laid path. You can see more in the short video above.
Placing a path around primary walking areas eliminates soil compaction. Recycling and reusing is always the first choice and this stone came from our old fireplace. Planting beans, cucumber, and zucchini in a circle to climb up tomato stakes will save space.
Including an attractive herb garden around the walking path will give visitors the chance to smell rich scents and enjoy the garden more. All the herbs came from the Bonnie Plants nursery and went in the ground in excellent condition. It will be exciting to see how it all develops.
Remember, as you follow along and build your garden, please send photos and details to me, Shawna Coronado, and I will post your successes – and your failures – so we can all learn how to make a difference with a garden. Please send anything you can – what do you do with all the vegetables you harvest for instance? Will you sell them for additional family income? Will you give them away to local food banks? My readers want to know ALL the details.
Let’s build a garden together! Please join the 2009 Casual Gardener “Get It Garden” Challenge today and help make a difference for yourself and your community.
Shawna Coronado says Get Healthy! Get Green! Get Community!
