Square Foot Gardening
Patrick has been building raised beds for many weeks now. He found scrap cedar on Craigslist to construct them. We finally got them in the ground after weeks of rain. It rained the day we put them out too. We mixed the soil in the rain... fun ;)
Here are a couple beds that we have lined with cardboard to kill the weeds
The soil is a mixture of compost that we purchased at Marvin's Organic Gardens (made from zoo poo), vermiculite and peat moss
The layout. Still, too few beds for the amount of plants and seeds we have!
