My Garden 2021

It has been a while since I shared a gardening post with you.  One of my favorite hobbies is gardening, hence today I will share some pictures of my flower patches and my veggies garden.

Every year I like to make some changes to my gardens, or even reorganize them all together.

My New Suburban Organic Veggie Garden

Three years ago I changed the layout of my original veggie garden, turning it into 3 rectangular beds, using over 120 cinder blocks (one cinder block weighs 30 lbs. so it was a really good workout for me…:-)
I was pretty happy with my new garden, until this year after reading an article about cinder blocks, and finding a lot of conflicting information about Fly Ash used in concrete production.  I contacted the concrete manufacturer and was reassured that they use only .35% of fly ash, which is quite safe and nothing to worry about.
