Raised Bed--October View

In my photo archives, I discovered this October 5 view of the raised bed featured in the blog of January 16. The onions are the only vegetable common to both views. Two small trees planted on the south side of this bed could make it a bit shady, but tomatoes were grown, along with beets and kale. With a plot this serious, no doubt other vegetables have already harvested.

I would suggest starting your garden with potted vegetable plants. Garden Harvest Supply is a great online resource with over 200 varieties of potted vegetable plants.

Using potted plants is a good way to get a head start on the season. In fact in Vancouver, it is about the only way to have a tomato or basil harvest. You can start plants yourself indoors, if you have good light conditions.

A note for Canadians--the above provider of plants is in the US, so the border is a problem for us.
