created a raised-bed garden? Share a photo and tell us what you planted and how it's doing.
A raised bed doesn't need to be 3 feet off the ground! Stone or brick edge walls and gravel paths are gorgeous ways to define your vegetable beds and make it easier to pick the fruits of your labor.

The spot enlarges and eventually causes the entire tomato to rot and develop a leathery skin.The problem is caused by calcium deficiency. It's most common in areas where the growing season

Like the idea of a sitting area in/near kitchen.
Would be pretty coming out from a formal dinning
