Raised Bed Progress

Or lack therof.

My three tomatoes have achieved some size and one has set a tomato. I clearly need to stake them since they are beginning to sprawl over the other vegetables.

The pepper and eggplant have not grown very much although they seem to be getting ready to bloom.

In the front you can see string beans that seem to be stuck at 6 inches high. I probably need some fertilizer because I filled the bed with mostly bagged compost and a little topsoil.

The other thing I need to do is to secure the corners to the 2 x 6 side timbers.

Looking good! I was told to fertilize my wax beans, and lo and behold they are taking off suddenly! Amazing. This is a great looking raised bed!

What did you use?

The lack of vegetables is probably my fault too...

Only if you want to claim it.
