Looks like we are going to need to build another garden or few, someday, somewhere.
I stopped by Tuesday afternoon while the fence poles were going up, nice work, guys!
Got a good look at the (sub)soil from the post hole diggers. Yuck.
It is a Good Thing we have raised beds, and deep ones at that.
The bed mix is about 50% organic compost and 50% screened loam. It will grow wonderful veggies for you, and will feed them well, no fertilizer needed. When things settle down, maybe I can get Garden Coordinator Chris back in here to do a raised bed post. It's a little crazy right now, getting this garden set up. Just a bit.
Looks like it is going to be a nice weekend......A great weekend to get your garden going!
There will be veggie plants for sale as well, so if you are looking for some local stuff, come on by this Saturday!
