Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

New Vegetable Garden

I am trying two raised beds this year as a vegetable garden. Each measures 3 ft. x 3 ft. and is 10 inches deep.

Dan did most of the work to put them down level by using the pick axe.

We went to Home Depot for soil and a couple of bags of humus/manure. The soil came with lots of additives and there wasn't much choice. We got 9 bags to split between the two beds.
Here they are filled in. I can't wait to plant but am waiting on my seed order and free seeds from my daughter.
I couldn't have done it in one day without Dan's help.

They look very nice and the plastic will last forever, that's a plus. Good luck with your crops and I can't wait to see them full of produce.
