Hello to all our faithful readers especially vegetable growers aspiring to be homestead gardeners. We have busy replacing our worn out raised beds with Vego beds (rhymes with Lego).
Cucumber and pepper seedlings are being planted into our new beds. black-eyed peas, okra, cucumbers, and melons can be started from seed outdoors. (Timing is good for squash seeding as well but we are taking a break from squash vine borers this year.)
Raincatcher’s Volunteers are using the existing soil from our veggie beds mixed with compost to fill these new beds. Beverly suggested the hügelkultur method for those starting brand new beds.
Ann Lamb and Beverly Allen, both Dallas County Master Gardeners!
