    City Girl has gone back to the city!!! It has been a busy year. We have sold our home and down sized. We are currently living in an apartment and loving it. It was a nice change to be able to walk to a grocery store or the library. The best part is that we are only a short walk to the beach. We are looking forward to learning to garden in containers. I hope to update with pictures soon. Until then I can look at these and wonder what the new owner is planning to plant for fall. Happy Gardening!!

    I am SO amazingly sorry for the fact that 7 months after the fact I saw that you had posted a question to me and I never saw it or answered it. I am seriously not that big of a jerk. Honest.

    Here is the question:
    Posted by: City Girl Garden on February 29th, 2012 at 03:05 am

    "I love the look of your raised beds. Do you have them on an angle? Also, it looks like you have corn planted in a barrel. Did it do well in it. I had trouble with my corn last year and I am looking for other ideas for this year. Have a great day in the garden!"


    Last year, the corn did not do too well. I have always had lousy luck with corn. This year, I planted a different variety and planted in a different spot. We got two edible ears (and then the ants took the rest), but they were the best, sweetest corn I'd ever had! (I don't have the seed package, but it was from Seeds of Change and called something like "Sweet Martian Corn" or something. The Martian part is because the cob is red. So, while it wasn't enough to feed the family, it *was* the first time we actually got to eat corn we'd grown.

    As for the boxes planted on an angle, they are on a very slight angle. There is a wash sort of built into this yard that leads into the front yard and the boxes are on either side of it. I now have gravel in between all of the boxes and the angle is not as noticable.

    I so very much appreciate your comment, so very sorry I didn't reply at the time.

    Have a great day in the garden! :)

    I can't believe how long it has been since I updated here. With the garden, work and family illness, it seems like forever. The summer garden is done and we are preparing to put in the fall garden this weekend. Will try to update pictures.

    Thanks for the congrats City Girl. You know, it's tempting to plant outside, since the weather's been so warm but, all of a sudden, there could be frost, so I'm trying to hold off. It seems pretty evident that I won't have to wait until May 24th, as usual.

    Congratulations on being named Farmer of the Day! Nice garden beds. But why so far apart?
