Summer garden

This year we added two bigger raised beds with cinder blocks. We tried a new approach with laying dead branches at the bottom then dirt to top it off with compost. 

It's been good so far. I transplanted a seedling Jason threw in a pot and it came out spaghetti squash. Bummer part is that it happened to overtake my two rhubarb plants. Each year we learn where to plant and what not to put next to each other. 

We haven't had as much rain this year but we are learning this gardening thing. 
Lettuce is an awesome crop. Will do it again in the fall. We used the whole envelope of seeds and came out with more than we could use.  Family and friends got bags of lettuce and loved it. Can't wait to do it again. The nice thing is that a mile away is a local farmer where you can get fresh produce cheap. Going to do some canning next weekend.
