I didn't want to hijack the other posters thread. Quote:I had my veggie garden in the front yard for years, until a septic install gave me a blank slate out back to start all over again. Here is the old garden: Now that the veggie garden has been moved I've had the bones of a new, formal herb garden installed, there are no plants in it yet, spring is coming, though! I'd post a picture of it, but it's buried again under a foot of snow. The clean slate after septic install: Here is the new garden, out back, still a work in progress: I moved the beds out there, and the large open garden is where I grow things that take room, like corn, squash, potatoes, tomatoes (although I grew 12 tomatoes per bed out front, now I've got more room, I still stick to 12, but they can spread more!). My biggest problem is I am so used to growing in beds I have a real hard time planning in that wide open space!
