Part of my Christmas present from dear hubby was a couple of new raised bed planters just under my studio window. He spent Saturday morning weeding the area, leveling it out and filling my new beds with beautiful soil.
This area used to be mostly shady when the three big ash trees we recently had removed ruled the backyard. They have since been replaced with less messy, more garden friendly trees and now I have a nice sunny plot for a cutting garden and vegetable bed.
I spend Saturday afternoon before the rain putting in cool season vegetables in one of the planters. Lettuce, radishes, carrots, sugar snap peas and a few herbs should begin showing themselves in a few weeks.
The other one I scattered cutting garden seeds plus a few rows of larkspur and bachelors buttons, which bloom profusely for us here in the early spring.
The sun is shining gloriously today and the week ahead is calling...
