It’s been more of a minor hobby for years, but now I’m ripping up all the river rock borders and nice fat pathways. Instead, we’ll use the left over lumber from a recent project to make slightly raised beds, using as much of the rich soil as possible to raise food crops.<br />n<br />nI have family support, too! My six year old girl was helping to move the rocks. <a href=”http://www.reneesgarden.com/” title=”renees garden”>Renees Garden seeds</a> are on sale at Orchard this weekend, ten percent off. That’s an errand for this week some time.<br />n<br />nHope to post updates as to the progress over the coming weeks, months and season!
