So I am happy to report that with my mom's help, and a few hours hard work, the raised veggie beds are in. My mom found these wood frames at a garden co-op for $5 a piece but they are would be super easy to make with some lumber (re-used is even better!) and hinges. Then we just added some organic soil, some of my beautiful compost with the most beautiful, fat worms I have ever seen, and our veggie seeds and organic tomato plants. Now just to get it to grow. Although with that compost it might be impossible not to. We also have lettuce and swiss chard growing in pots in the small greenhouse we have. It's not perfect, but it's a start.
Where are you at in your gardening? Are you growing something this year? Are you using compost? Any tips?
