Gardening in the NW

Finally I had a chance to take some pictures of our garden and share them with all of you. This year summer has been on the colder side and that would be an understatement, although living in Portland OR metro area has it's pluses the weather this year would not be one of them. I guess I should stop complaining and share the pictures with you.
Home Vegetable Gardening: A Complete and Practical Guide to the Planting and Care of all Vegetables, Fruits and Berries Worth Growing for Home Use (Illustrated Edition)We finally are gaining control over the weeds in the gardens and having the boxes surely helps to fight them, the other day I was pulling weeds out of our gutters so you can imagine how they spread on the ground. The only good thing with this weather is that there is no need to water anything since the rain does it for us, but honestly I don't know how the harvest is going to be this year. Take a look at some of the pictures of our garden and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Our tomatoes have been doing great this year they grew so nicely but I need to build something around them for support before they will be all over the dirt.
 It's not enough that we don't have room in our yard to walk through my kids decided to set up a tent and a volleyball net, o well kids will be kids.
 My wife is preparing preparing room for winter crop and  the lettuce has grown from a seed it's amazing how much can grow from a tiny seed.
 Another view of the garden it's a nice way to landscape your yard.
Having the rock walk ways with Irish and Scottish moss growing in between helps to keep our bare feet clean when we enjoy s'mores in our back yard fire pit and the Tiki torches definitely add to the whole experience.

This strawberry patch produced a lot of strawberries, plenty for our family to enjoy, and now we will probably expend it next year.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures of our garden I know that it's still the work in progress but with each year it gets more and more manageable. Thanks for reading till next time.
