Bed 1 Clean Up

The holidays are behind us and the 2011 growing season is right around the corner. I spent the day out in the sun pulling the tomato plants out of bed 1. Below are before and after photos.

Now I need to figure out what I'm going to plant in there. I was thinking maybe summer squash.

With this week off on vacation I'm going to get my popup greenhouse setup for seed starting. I will also finish adding water lines into the beds and turning the compost bin. All weather permitting.

In other garden news the avocado tree is doing very well and is putting out a lot of new growth.

 The banana has also been putting on new growth. This spring I will try to separate two of the pups from the mother plant and re-pot them into their own containers. I'm hoping this will help the mother fruit this next summer.


The ginger on the other hand is not doing as well. I'm hoping it will put out new shoots once the weather warms up.
That is it for now.. Need to go plan my 2011 garden :-)


  1. Your garden looks so nice and clean now. I shudder to think of what mine looks like, as I just left almost everything growing when I left town! There will be all kinds of yucky dead vines on the fences.

  2. Thanks Granny. I still have lots to do. Bean vines need to be pulled out of bed 4. I pulled some today while I was putting in the new water line. Beds need to be topped off. I hope you don't have too much to clean up when you get home.
