I have started planting, I start with just a few things & add as the season progresses, I do tend to be a late planter (I’m a procrastinator by nature…I have at least 5 drafted blog posts as we speak, that I started, but haven’t finished), but this season I am even later, as I needed to avoid any chance of frost & they were warning of it overnight in just the past week. We had a VERY long Winter this year!
First a pic of our smaller planting bed, before we turned it & made a raised bed:
Tomorrow you will see it as a raised bed & with the plantings, I will go through the steps with you, since we are transplanting some items & some are freshly planted.
This is going to be 1 of our transplants, Chocolate Mint, it did very well, so well, it sustained through Winter & even started to spread into the pool area:
The Chocolate mint is now sitting in 2 separate pots waiting to be transplanted into the new bed. I have some to share with friends who are looking for starters as well 🙂
Here is a pic of the first tier frame built:
Tomorrow I’ll post more specifics, and pics of finished 2-tiered first bed done.
Next in the series will be the start of our pallet garden/privacy fence for the pool!
