New Vegetable Garden

 Since the old garden is now only getting 3 hours of sun a day we decided to make a new garden out back - we started from scratch (scratch means 3 foot tall grass, raspberry bushes and big rocks) Here's how it started...

First we had to have the area flattened, grass and rocks pushed out of the way and a load of sand, then screened topsoil brought in.

Next David and I built a fence around the garden to keep the deer out!

Then  I made beds with a mix of the topsoil and a black earth/manure/compost mix.

and started planting!
