Pictures of my raised bed vegetable garden
Posted on Oct 21, 2016 6:02 AM

In this area there are 10 raised beds. They are made out of landscape timbers. The raised beds are 4' X 8'.

This first picture is the road side of the garden. A huge Asparagus patch is on the outside. Along the 2-rail fence on the outside I planted Asiatic Lilies, Daylily, and white re-blooming double Iris. On the inside towards the field are Daylily, Columbine, and Dwarf Iris. Daylilies are planted along the 4-rail fence in the back.

This is the garden shed side. Along this side on the inside I planted Iris and Spiderwort. Along the front of both sides on the inside are Daylily, Bee balm, and Black Eyed-Susan.

I planted my tomatoes in this area in the front of the beds. I like to sit and rest a while when I am out here tending my vegetables. These pictures were taken the end of August 2016 so a lot of my veggies have been harvested like beets, peas, lettuce, radishes, and others.

I planted my potatoes in the red tubs. It did not work out very good so I will not be planting them in the tubs next year.

In the center of this bed are ornamental peppers with a row of green beans on both sides of it.

This patch of green is ornamental cucumbers.

In these beds I have flowers planted. They are mostly Iris that I received this year which will be relocated next year.

As you can see, there is plenty of room for me to add more flowers. I have landscape fabric down under the mulch which really helps to keep the grass and weeds from growing. It shouldn't be too hard to add flowers when I get the time.

More flower beds in my yard.

I call this my bird house flower bed. This old dump rake is missing a few parts. It was along a fence in one of my DH's farm fields. It had a tree growing inside it so DH cut off the tree and we put it in the yard with the stump attached. April 2016

This is my Ferris Wheel flower bed. My Grandson gave us this tree that he grew in school. Then a friend gave me this Ferris Wheel that he used to have in a parade that he didn't want anymore so I made a bed around my Grandson's tree and added the Ferris Wheel. The Iris here are double white re-blooming.

Here are updated pictures taken July 2016 of the Bird house bed and the Ferris Wheel bed.

These yellow flowers sure do reseed and spread. I may have to try and stop them next year so they don't take over the whole bed. This summer I planted some Iris and Daylily in this bed.

This is my side flower bed on the north side of our yard by my 2-rail fenced in raised vegetable garden. In the last post were pictures of the side bed next to the pasture that is similar to this one. I just redid this north side bed this year with fabric and new mulch. The Lilies were planted last year. This bed isn't finished yet. I want to put a rock border around it.

These are some NOID ditch Daylily. My girlfriend gave me some of her Asiatic Lilies that have just gone crazy.

Last winter we moved my garden shed about 12 feet to this new location next to the vegetable garden. This spring I made these 2 small flower beds next to the entrance. The Sunflower came up on its own so I let it grow.

Here are some pictures of what my flower beds looked like this year. These pictures were taken in May 2016. This is my flower bed by the pasture. I added new flowers to this bed so it should have more flowers blooming next year.
