Today I filled the fourth raised bed with a mixture of our native red clay soil and a bag each of composted chicken manure and cotton burrs. Then I planted 8 tomato plants and 5 pepper plants and one basil plant.

I also attempted to finish putting rabbit fencing around the raised beds, but I cut myself with the wire cutters and had to call it a day. I'll finish tomorrow.

Here are a few pictures. The potatoes are huge, and lettuce, spinach, beets and onions are doing well. As soon as these crops are finished, probably in another month, I will replace them with sweet potatoes, summer and winter squash,melons and okra.

My biggest problem seems to be that my seedlings don't come up evenly. I'll have to try to figure out what is causing that. It probably doesn't help that our blue heeler pup likes to dig and sunbathe in the beds when I'm not looking! Really have to get the fences finished...
