Raised Beds

My husband got a hold of some slab wood, so I snagged a few pieces and made a raised bed for early crops.  Our children were eager to fill it, but it was going to take a lot to fill it.

So, hubby tackled it, emptying the newly made soil out of the compost heap.

And that day he tilled it, set up pea fencing and I planted it.  It has peas, radishes, turnips, lettuce, kale and spinach.  I look forward to seeing sprouts!

I built another smaller raised bed next to it (not in the picture).  It isn't filled yet and I'm not sure what I'm going to put in it, but I'm thinking I may move my strawberries into it in hopes of a better strawberry crop.

I'm beginning to get addicted to raised beds.  I want to build more and more and just fill them with wonderful goodies!  But, I think two this year are plenty.

We're trying to raise money for a barn.  We would greatly and humbly appreciate it if you considered donating towards our dream by clicking the barn picture the right or clicking HERE.
