I love what you've done. That's fantastic. Your veggie garden is inspiring me to get busy on my own permanent structures.

Are you going to let anything climb up and cover that arbor?

Thanks Dave, hubby Brad is really proud of his designs and we are already thinking we need more veggie areas!

As I wrote in the first paragraph "The trellis is planted with a rose (Autumn Sunset) and a purple clematis on the right and 2 cup 'n saucer (Cobaea scandens) vines on the left side, one green and one purple. Hubby Brad added copper piping between the posts."
I may change the cobaea out if they get too aggressive for something else. There will eventually be several more arbors throughout the whole garden in a similar design.

I agree - your raised beds are gorgeous and I am inspired by the design. I'm going to help a friend make a potager garden in the next couple months and I think he needs to see your pictures before we get started so he has a chance to tweak his plans before we put hammer to nail.

Thanks Chad! I originally wanted corner L shaped planters in a more traditional potager design but Brad wanted something different and off he went!

Is there anything you can't grow out there Hilarious! Hilarious!

I just find it amazing that you can grow lemons and rhubarb and yet neither works in our zone without lots of protection from or cold.

Just BEAUTIFUL Sue!
