New raised Beds

With the fence installed around the new garden area I was able to order
blueberry bushes and more raised beds. The bushes came on Friday and were planted that day. The raised beds were assembled with major help from Dan on Saturday. This afternoon I filled one of the beds and planted mesculun, spinach and arugula.

Blueberry bushes are on the east side of the garden (along the fence).

Green beans are forming.

Looking north, blueberries to the right. Eventually the paths will be mulched.

First of the new beds to be filled. It could have used more soil but I ran out of bags. I'll get more next weekend for the other beds and wait until spring to add more to this first one.
