April has arrived at last! Today started out warm and mild. Last night’s gentle rain has already begun greening the grass. Green shoots are popping up everywhere. Definitely time to think about this season’s gardens. As always I have more ideas than space.
But since I have seeds turning into plants under the Grolight, the veggie garden was foremost in my mind.
I have been building up the soil in the “beds” so they are raised above the paths. But they are not officially raised beds. Without sides, some of the soil has washed away over the winter. So I think we should build walls around the beds…making more traditional raised beds.
I did some measuring, checked some online videos on how to build raised beds, and made a plan. The wood will be delivered tomorrow. Bill has agreed to help with the construction. It certainly looks simple enough.
In addition, I have some unused space here where we will add a couple of new raised beds. That should give me enough space for now.
I am also hoping to plant some blueberry bushes and some strawberry plants in this bed in front of the coop.
It is so wonderful to be able to be out in the gardens again!
