Herb Garden - Summer Update

 Rear view above shows the completed fence and raised beds. The plant you see growing is the heirloom dipper gourd vines planted in early June. Weekly rain and horse manure have boosted them greatly. The next project is a trellis and upright support for these vigorous vines to grow upon.
 The mulch in the paths of the beds has leveled down greatly but is proving to be a good weed barrier. In the photos above and below you can see the gates added near the building. The final gate will need further thought. I want it to look like fence not gate, but still be able to open. Little by little things happen.
There is a rosemary plant in each of the four raised beds but you can't really see them yet. I am hoping they will take off and survive the winter. We will see.
