Since the weather is finally deciding to behave, hubby and I spent all weekend working on a raised bed for a veggie garden out front. We’re using the Square Foot Gardening method. We picked out the wood, had it cut at Home Depot, built the structure, mixed the soil (1/3 vermiculite, 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 compost), and created the grid which divides the garden into 1 square foot plots.
We ran out of time to actually do any planting, so I’m going to pick up some seeds today after work and hopefully I’ll be able to get them in the ground. I also want to pick up some stones to make the area around the garden look pretty.
As you can see, I’m putting a lot more thought and effort into the garden this year! I can’t wait to get growing.
