So now one entire 4x8 garden is planted. I hope I got the spacing ok in the one I planted. I want to leave them room to grow obviously, but want the highest yield, too. We will see. Now for the other one I'm thinking pole beans and maybe peas. And I'm so excited about them that I would like to make about 4 more of them, if we had the room and more spots with good sun. Hmm.
Edit--on the way up to our hometown this weekend for 2 days of decluttering at the parents homes, we were discussing our gardening efforts and Rob said he would really enjoy getting a plot of land and doing some more heavy duty gardening. I would love to do some co-op gardening. Also, I got bunches of pretty bluish-purple monarda and clumps of forget-me-nots, as well as fresh rhubarb too. My mother in law is going to give me a clump of rhubarb in the fall, woo hoo. I don't know how anyone would have it growing and not use it, it's such a yummy and easy fruit to use! I would like to make rhubarb soda with it: http://www.culinate.com/recipes/collections/Culinate%20Kitchen/Beverages/rhubarb_soda
