New Garden Beds


These 2018 garden beds are in the old pumpkin patch adjacent to the main garden. Later this year, we may add similar beds in the area that had been the main garden in the past. 

I am really liking having the defined edges and the ability to level the soil within the bed.  Lots and lots of rocks have come out of the four beds!  They are all planted now, except one corner which will get sunflower seeds planted soon.
