Below you'll find a weekly update with the progress of our vegetable garden.
Week 1: Switching from a single raised bed to two had its challenges. We'd have to assemble the new bed and then empty the original bed and move it to its new location. The lawn had to be moved as well. After juggling the design on paper we were all set and ready for the the heavy lifting.
The lawn was moved, the beds lined with weed block and then, in went twenty 6 Kg bags of triple mix soil, some manure from our compost bin and some peat moss.
Despite trying to follow the square foot gardening techniques last year, we had cut corners and as a result our tomato crop got damaged. So this year we'd have to be more careful with the layout.
The vegetables that made the list were tomatoes, strawberries, onions, peas, cucumber, radish, lettuce, Swiss chard,cilantro,spinach,beet,broccoli,chives,dill, parsley and beans
