OK, here goes. I apologize if I confuse....
The top 2 pics are of the plot in question. I am constantly fighting the next door field that would like to continue growing into it, also little yellow beetles that eat my basil until the end of June (then it grows fine), and critter mounds that appear all over it. It is 3 years old, and the soil is getting to a point where its great!
The next is the new one, a year old, and no fighting prairie grass or bugs.
I intend to expand it by double this or next year.
The last is part of the distance in between, to show I don't have much sun to go anywhere else!
#1. Would you abandon the smaller, older, difficult garden all together, or keep fighting and keep growing the larger veggies in it. (Squash, corn, zukes, etc.)
#2. Abandon and take the dirt from it to add to the larger newer garden...... possibly taking the annoying critters and bugs with it.
#3. If i decide on keeping the plot in question, how do I reclaim it from the crabgrass, and will continuing my cinder block wall help keep it out?
I think that's all. Mostly.
