Backyard Garden Plot Pictures – Week 47 of 52
The strawberry plants we have growing in the wood pallets are still alive and kicking. 🙂 As you can wee, the ones we grew last year in the pallets are nice and green while the ones we transplanted still look like little twigs and are hard to see.
For the most part the backyard garden is coming along nicely. I plan on harvesting beets, carrots and maybe some turnips today for my family as well as a few of my neighbors. I think it will be fun to get outside and get a little gardening done. Even if it is only pulling up vegetables. 🙂
The lasagna garden I started a while back is gaining height. My goal is to have a 12″ raised lasagna bed by spring. In the last few weeks I’ve added leaves and soil from the potato mounds in the side yard. I think if I keep at it I’ll have enough soil to work with.
Every morning I look out the window and the glass on the greenhouse is covered with frost. Luckily the glass clears up around 10 am so the light can shine in and warm up the plants a wee bit. Surprisingly the herbs we have planted along side the greenhouse are still hanging in there.

And last but not least, a view of the raspberry canes and blueberry bushes. Some of the leaves on the blueberry bushes are still green but the raspberries? Forget about it. There’s nothing but naked canes left. I keep going back and forth on whether or not I want to transplant the canes to another area in the garden.
I’ve thought about moving them alongside the greenhouse, but I’m not sure.
Any ideas? I know we have a lot of options, but still, it’s hard to figure out where the best spot would be.
How is your garden doing these days? Is it put to bed for the winter? Or are you still harvesting?
