The day has arrived!
Soil has come!
Holy crap I am tired.
That is a huddle of twelve bags of soil. Boy howdy was that a trip. Never been happier my dad has a Subaru. Not sure how I’d have gotten it home otherwise. I got some… other things at the local garden center but they’re another post.
First step was lining the already cardboard lined beds with newspaper…
Second step was dirt. So much dirt. I added some worm casings in to help it absorb water- important since some of these beds will in a few weeks hold cucumbers and zucchini.
There are the other two new beds- being watched over by the plastic owl guardian.
I have so many seedlings growing so it’s nice that the space is finally here for growing.
I’ll grow more beans in the backs of two of these beds, zucchini in one, and cucumbers in another. It’s all a matter of staggering my growing so that I’ll have harvests all through summer and fall though, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of these beds are empty for a few months. At least I’ve gotten it done.
I am so tired.
One thought on “Part two of new raised bed adventures”
Goodness, that is a lot of work for a few vegetable plants. Is the endemic soil in your part of San Francisco rather good. I am not very familiar with San Francisco, but it seems to me that the soil is quite variable from region to region.
