Raised Vegetable Bed – A Beginning

Vegetable Bed Ready for Planting

The other weekend we finally completed our raised vegetable bed! It is a 6 foot by 4 foot rectangle and is 1 foot deep. The bed was filled with some stinky soil and we went to the store to get some veggie seeds. Why veggies? Well I tried to plant cupcakes but that didn’t turn out too well.

We planted tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, parsley, terragon and jalepeno’s so far. Maybe some squash too. The bed is dividied into 1 foot by 1 foot squares so we still have some empty squares to plant more goodies once we decide on what else to put in. I accidently went a little overboard on the cucumber seeds and planted 6 instead of 3. Oops. If anyone wants some cucumbers in a few weeks just let me know.
