Take a peek into the back corner of my yard that I call "England":
That's right, last week-end we got a bunch of cedar 2x6's and made 2 raised beds for veggies. I really wanted to get them in this fall (did I just say fall? sigh!) so the soil will settle over the winter and they'll be ready to plant first thing next spring. There are 2 boxes, each 4 ft by 8 ft - tonnes of veggies space compared to what I currently have!! Hooray!
Here's the work in progress. I still have to even out the slope around the boxes and re-lay the patio stones and put down gravel around them. And of course fill the boxes. But it's a good start for a week-end's work, wouldn't you say? And it certainly looks better than last year, don't you think?
