Raised bed garden paths mulched

Yesterday I found the time to begin the project of covering up the rocks that the spring flood washed down into my garden.  I considered conceeding to rock pathways, but soon discovered that it hurts to kneel on rocks.

Usually by this time of year I am just weeding and harvesting and canning.  The garden wants a bit more attention this year. I have replaced almost every raised bed frame, converting 6×8 beds to 4×8 size as I go.

This has been an absolutely amazing year for tomatoes.  My harvest has been great…about 3 pounds a day for the last 2 weeks from 27 plants. There are LOTS more green tomatoes waiting to size up and ripen.

    • This is my first year using straw seriously. I can see that the birds are eating bugs in there every day. I imagine that if I leave it, many bugs will have a nice home to overwinter in.
