I've always been the kind of gardener who, at the crack of dawn, has already been up working for hours, preparing the equipment and staging the implements and materials to be ready by sunrise.
I was able to work a bit in the raised beds today, despite having to hobble around on a bad leg. I am so glad I converted the large garden bed into smaller and more manageable raised beds.
I have this friend, Kathleen, who always shows us up in early Spring with the most amazing beds filled with lettuce and other greens, long before others in our gardening group have much of anything to show.
Having torn out the main garden and the pretty white pickets that have bordered it for the past 10 years, I'm now starting to build the raised beds in that same area.
