Today the plan was to build a slightly raised bed for veggies down the side of the house (which gets good morning sunshine). Our garden helper arrived early and went to work after a little coaching as to what we wanted. It has worked out wonderfully well. Turns out he is just as good at building things as working in the garden.
Mrs. F.G has a little soil and mulch to add and then plans to plant mostly tomatoes and beans for now. We'll get more soil, leaves and mulch added in the fall. We're very pleased with how this worked out.
