I raised beds and filled with compost and made shelf. It took me for 3 weekends.

When I was building beds yesterday, over 4 feet long snake showed up to my next neighbor’s plot, he fought for 20 minutes and killed snake. It is very scary.

2015/12/25 Last snapshot of Vegetable Garden

I had been growing organic vegetables for six years since 2009 in community garden plot in San Jose. But the community garden belongs to school’s property and the school will expand grades starting next year. So the school district needs more land and decided to use community garden plot for school.

I broke down railing and moved pole brace to friends house who want to make front yard vegetable garden.

I harvested Komatsuna today, and made Komatsuna with sesame dish. Even it is very big but still tender and tasty.

2013/03/03 Vegetable Garden

I re built my vegetable garden because next door gardener moved to bigger plot and he took the edge wood after I screwed my wood stack. So I needed to re built my garden.

It took me about two weeks to complete all contraction.

2012/04/08 Vegetable Garden in New Look

I already posted that I built new bigger plot with raising beds and water system but I needed to give up.

2012/04/01 Giving up new plot, disappointing….

 

Now I broke down new plot, re-built and move all plant to old plot. It took me for one whole week. I already got wood boards for double size plot, and I did not want to waste wood boards, so I raised bed so high.

2012/02/23 New Vegetable Garden in Big Plot

I changed to bigger plot(double sized) this year because few gardeners were out from the garden due to other city residency status.

This is the old plot I had last year.

I got bigger plot (double size), but there were two artichokes in the plot which I got…. and it’s so hard to pull out…..

It took me for 3 days to pull out two artichokes!

They have long deep roots, I need to dig deep and cut the roots.

Finally I finished all work for new plot, it’s nicely done! I had been worked very hard for two weeks, did carpenter work which I did first time. I bought many wood studs and I used more than two hundred screws to built bedding. I want high bedding, I used 7&1/2 inch high stud which I loaded more than 20 loads compost in each bedding…..it was hard work….

Also I built two shelves too! I transplanted cabbage, broccoli, green onion, chives, trefoil from my old plot.
