First Raised Garden Bed

Originally at Simple Is Working 9/6/11

Last night I participated in #gardenchat for the first time and got some good advice from @Cowlickcottage on some things that I might want to consider when I begin.  Well today I began and here are the result.

Starting out, I know I should have taken the turf up, but I didn’t, just took the little rototiller and went at it.

 


The tools of the trade, with the wheel barrow doing its “High Ho Silver” impression 🙂

The finished bed ready for planting. Originally, I had thought this one was going to be for garlic, but the wife has other plans now, so I guess I have to put out a couple of more and see what else she wants to grow.
See how clean it is around the new bed, all the tools are picked up and put away – another new leaf that I have turned over in the last couple of months.
But that old stump is going to have to go away next spring, the tools crowbar, axe and shovel = Harold The Destroyer will do battle. 😉
