Tonight we had turnips with dinner. First time I've ever successfully grown them! :130:

I am ready to turn the whole garden in some days and other days I'm okay with it.

I found that Nature's Gold gave it quite the boost this year - will probably do that again.

I guess I couldn't wait. New box is filled and the extra will top up the other 2 when the crops are done.

Wow Bsuds, you are very efficient. If you get bored, feel free to come shovel soil at our place!

3 days of on and off work and then 1 yard of soil moved via wheelbarrow to the back of the yard.

I am happy with the results but suspect I will be sore tomorrow!

I love the brick corner pieces that the wood fits into slots.

You haven't got anything planted yet though?

If you do, I usually put little stakes at the corners and in the middle of the sides, plus a few in the middle and then drape with dollar store netting.
