Although it is still quite cool at night, it's definitely time to get my gardening area ready. I put together 2 of my 3 "easy to assemble" raised gardening containers today. I was exhausted by tthat pretty simple task so I decided to spend more time thinking, before I put the last one together, about exactly how to place them -- I am getting much better at making shabby excuses for my slacker tendencies! Each one of these areas will take 130 quarts of soil to fill, plus the potato area and a large pot for peas and herbs -- and since I can't carry the big bags, and since there is no clear path from my driveway to the garden where I could use a wheelbarrow, it might be the end of summer before I finally purchase, carry and dump all of the necessary bags. On my next break, perhaps, I should start planning what I will plant once I finally break ground in 2011! This seemed like such a good idea when I planned my garden in the dead of winter!
