Crop Circle

With fairly nice weather I couldn’t wait to get outside today and do some work. I wanted to finish the bed we’ve been working on.

Crop Circle

The work went pretty fast. I finished digging and raking the bed. The stones around the outside of the bed came from the bed. Those are only the biggest, most obvious ones. The soil has a lot more stones. With this circular bed now I’ve got an itching to dig other circular beds. Why do they have to be square? We’re considering what shape the paths should follow. A peace sign? Yin-yang symbol? I think I’m leaning to the yin-yang symbol.

I also transplanted our blueberries into a separate bed.

    I think I vote for the yin-yang, although I think the peace symbol would be great too! I like the idea of circular beds. You could do both symbols since you’ll have more than one bed. The one you just finished digging looks great. Can’t wait to see it when you are finished and things are growing!!

    I vote for the yin yang too. I made a yin yang bed with my first house and it was beautiful! I put red sunflowers in the middle, then planted purple cabbage, red lettuce, etc on one side and then romaine lettuce, broccoli, and spinach on the other side. It was really pretty!

    I don’t have a good picture, but you can see it here a little bit (it was 6 years ago):
