After several seasons of fighting legions of weeds in this humid climate I have finally come to my senses and begun installing raised beds! Trying to grow food in this weed infested place is insanity without using RoundUp.
And you know how I feel about Monsanto.
So the logical and more safe solution for us is raised beds. Bob has been helping me in the garden every Sunday for weeks now. He has rototilled, and scorched baby weeds with the Red Dragon.

This is NOT a paid endorsement! We have had our RD weed burner for many years and just love how well it works. Unfortunately, we can’t use it in and amongst the veggies… Hence the new garden plan.
So, here is the layout.
Notations in blue show changes and planned additions. We have the center and right side construction completed and half planted. NOTE: The rotation plan I am utilizing is to help with insect and disease control. You can see the plan HERE

There is still so much more to be done here. I have to add more soil, and lay down the wood mulch around the beds.
What plans do you have for your garden(s)? What strategies do you use to help you with chores and upkeep?
PLEASE DON’T BE SHY!
