Earth Day 2018: filled the new raised veggie bed with soil

IMG_7902

Today I filled up the new veggie box, which was built last fall. It was SO GOOD to be outside!

Because I’m sorta cheap and because I had a lot of suitable materials lying around, I filled this box with half kitchen and garden scraps (last fall), and then today added a mix of newly purchased and recycled (previously used) potting soil.

I won’t add any homemade outdoor compost because it won’t be ready yet, but this week I’ll add some worm compost from my basement worm bin.  And probably a few worms inadvertently, too.  Then I’ll be ready to plant.

By the end of next week-end I plan to have the following seeds planted using the Square Foot Method:

  • arugula
  • beets
  • carrots
  • kale
  • snow peas
  • spinach
  • swiss chard.

P.S. For the record: frost on April 23, …
