The Yin Yang garden bed has been planted. Last weekend I worked in some compost we bought at the feed store. Not much for the size of bed, but something. Then I planted seeds. Carrots, lettuce, kale, spinach, broccoli, beets, chard and bush beans and still have room. We’ve got tomatoes and watermelons coming up inside. This is going to be our first garden so we’re still trying things out. Over time the garden will grow. We’re going to need other planting areas in addition to this one.
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.
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.
