This morning, I moved
Three quarter cubic yard of planter mix. Our soil here is heavy clay, and some of the yard seems to have a layer of something like asphalt underneath four inches of clay. Not good for a garden. My husband built this raised bed using some stray wood, and we found a gravel company nearby that had this planter mix for a great price.
Now that the raised bed is filled, I am ready to water and plant seeds: spinach, lettuce, beets, chard, cabbage, onion and garlic.
I realize it is late to be putting in fall vegies, but I am going to try. See what I can get away with before the frosts settle in. Should have at least six weeks here. Challenge the seasons. And if it doesn't work, the raised bed will be ready to go in the spring.
