sizing up the vegetable garden

IMG_4015

Now that I’ve got most of perennials happily settled in their permanent places, I’m turning my attention to the veggie garden.  I’d like to put in two raised beds back here. I had raised beds at my old house and they were the best thing I ever did – you fill them up and have perfect, unwalked on, well-draining soil, plus you don’t have to bend over so far to weed and harvest.   The boxes will be similar to the ones at my old house, except that this time I’ll have a 4’x4′ and a 4’x8′.  We want to get them built this summer and filled so that they’re ready to plant first thing in spring – maybe even a fall seeding of a few things if we get them done in time!

 

And yes, those are dandelions in the grass.  The Edmonton infestation includes my own backyard.  😦
