garden gates

The gardens are now hopefully secure with gates all finished.

The first set of tires all planted up with swiss chard and beans. Can probably get at least 10 more tires in here.

So far there are potatoes, green onion, carrots, lettuce, broccoli, wildflowers and clover. Saving room for the warm season staples of tomato, cucumber, eggplant, and peppers.

I'm thinking of squeezing in 5 wooden raised beds on the wall. There'll be some kind of weed proof sheet topped with a tatami mat, to suppress sasa bamboo grass. Then framed with cheap wooden boards and filled with bagged soil.
