Today our new gardening adventure begins!
To make the raised bed Tom bought three 2x10 spruce planks, 8 feet long. He used the full-length boards for the 8 foot sides and cut one in half for the ends. We smoothed out an area and placed the frame; then we dug soil out of the garden where the walkways will be and filled the frame with the soil to make the raised bed.
Inside are transplanted chives, pansies which Tom's mother gave us, Bloomsdale Long Standing spinach seeds and Dwarf Jewel Mix nasturtium seeds.
