Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Traditional and Three Sisters Bed at Organic Farm

Traditional Row Garden
July 28, 2010

It is interesting to see the organic farm using more than one method of growing. They are using raised beds with hard edges, raised beds without hard edges, square foot gardening, butterfly gardening, three sisters' method and traditional row gardening.  When it comes to gardening it really is always a trial and error.  What works for some doesn't work for others.

This portion of the organic farm's garden is planted in traditional rows with the exception of the three sisters taking up a corner.  Along the evergreens is a nice row of sunflowers so they will really be lovely when in bloom.  Sunflowers are great companion plants as they attract birds into the garden. Everything looks so nice and healthy too.  Those still clinging to their non-organic methods would be impressed1

Happy Gardening!
