I worked in the garden this past Saturday. I added in two new veggie beds and increased the depth of four of the existing beds. Wood is expensive.
The ones closest to the photographer here are covered in cardboard in the hope that a week without sunlight will make the sod removal easier this Saturday.
My main motivation to raise the vegetable beds to these depths was the creek that runs behind my property. Last year the creed flooded several times and ruined some of the garden. I raised the lowest lying bed to a height of 18 inches. The next one up is now 14 inches high and the one in the foreground is 10 inches high. I think this is going to help quite a bit.
The dirt will be delivered to the front driveway early Saturday morning, weather allowing. Actually I’m starting to wonder, because the forecast calls for Thursday and Friday to be raining.
With any luck I’ll have these all filled and tilled and partially planted next week!
I’m not really looking forward to a day of moving dirt again, but it has to be done.
