Raised Beds

New Raised beds.

We finally had a weekend without rain, so my landscaper, RT, and his son were able to come on Saturday and construct my three new raised beds. The corner blocks and the wood have been sitting around since June, but we are finally done. I had the drainage contractor dump some of the leftover dirt on that bed, so they were able to fill the new beds without having to haul any soil in. They worked hard as the soil was still wet and heavy from the September rains.

Beds with stepping stones between them.

The third bed is taller than the other two since I’ll build a top for it with transparent plastic film so that I can use it for a cold frame in the spring for early plants and in the fall for late greens and other fall vegetables. We put stepping stones between the beds so I can walk between the beds without getting muddy and not have to deal with growing and maintaining grass between the beds.
