Week on the Farm: 5/15/16

Our big focus this week is getting raised beds built & filled. And by “our”, I mean Farmboy is working his asset off building these wonderful sturdy beds out of old, unused wood slabs that would otherwise be rotting into the ground. We’re double-stacking them to provide at least 12 inches of depth to accommodate a variety of whatever we want to plant in them, and the bottom beds are lined with 1/4″ hardware cloth to keep out the burrowing critters. We didn’t have any rodent issues last summer, but if & when the garden is discovered the war will begin so it makes sense to fortify things as much as we can before any carnage begins.
