A Garden Update: The First of Many
When it comes to gardens, our method of choice has always been raised beds.
I'll be honest with you, the greatest factor influencing this choice has always been the fact that we have no rototiller or plow.
And I was NOT looking forward to creating a brand new raised bed garden section from scratch. AGAIN. (I've only ever done it every two years or so....har har...and it is more than a little bit back breaking. And often pretty expensive!)
Turns out, one of our very kind neighbors DOES just this sort of thing and wanted to do it for us!
What a huge blessing it was and is and will be all season long!
I have never had a plowed garden before but the most exciting part is not having to work so hard to start a new garden!
After this season, we will probably build it up, as we usually do, "lasagna style".
It will be interesting not having my usual walk-ways and many different beds.
I will have to fight every possible urge not to plant this thing so full I can't walk on it anywhere.
Because I have some BIG plans for this thing. BIG plans.
