It's That Time of Year...

... when I start thinking of new projects for the garden... and yes I have two maybe three so far.
One I already mentioned.. adding water lines to all the beds. I have picked up a few supplies to test out the idea and it looks like it's going to work.... and while I was working out the water plan the second idea came to me. I will be reconfiguring bed 2. It is currently a 3x9 bed that is 8 inch high. I want to bring it down to 8x3 and add 6 inches of height to it. I may add a trellis to the end of it as well. Bring the bed down to 8 feet will give me a little more walking room to get to bed 5.

Bed 2 3x9
I'm hoping it will not rain Saturday so I can start taking apart the bed. I would love to knock this project out this weekend. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Plenty of walking room between the beds is definitely an advantage, and it sounds like you have a good plan for the bed. Deeper is always better, and I bet you'll get just as much harvest from the smaller space. Good luck with your project!

  2. Thanks EG! I think you’re right. I will get just as much harvest.. I'm thinking a little more. I have not done well with this bed but with the improvements I think it will be much better. OK your profile photo is still creeping me out ;-)

  3. Yes, it's definitely that time of year. There's always more to do out in the garden. Just subscribed via Google reader and looking forward to following along.

  4. Hi Jimmy! Thanks for following my blog. I hope to post this weekend once we get bed 2 re-built. I was able to get it pulled apart this past weekend. I'll be checking out your blog as well.

  5. I dream of adding water lines to my beds too. ;^) I'll have to check in more often to see how that project comes along.
