My Backyard Garden
When I made the decision to adopt a whole foods/plant based life style on a permanent basis, I decided that I would try to grow my own vegetables. I knew this would be a challenge, and anyone who knows me well knows not to ask me to water their plants when they are out of town! Anyway, I decided I would give it a shot. I opted for raised beds, so that I would not have to bend ... one less excuse to not go and tend to my garden. My landscaping company constructed a raised bed, and along with the smaller plastic raised beds that I bought, I was ready on March 28, 2017!
Once once my raised bed was constructed, or the trough, as I affectionately call it, I purchased organic soil, and prepared my beds. Since I know little about gardening, I had to purchase the best organic soil I could afford and hope for the best. I hope one day to mix my own. I placed weed blocking fabric in the beds and filled them with my soil mixture.
