This year- A Potager
My garden gets away on me. By August plants on paths are taller than the beds. I admit it, I hate weeding them. This year my garden is going in slowly because I am putting in some structure that I'm hoping will help me- raised beds and permanent paths. Raised beds will also help keep the soil from getting compacted, and enable me to put water and nutrients on the plants not the paths. So I thought I would show my journey into this change. Today my before picture. This was taken after tilling. I normally would then rake into beds and rows and plant, but this year I'm going to be getting my saw and hammer out too. Hopefully I'll be able to get all the beds made over the course of the summer and I'll take pictures as I go. Hope you enjoy.
