I have decided to start over. I'll be growing EVERYTHING in raised beds in order to make room for our chickens. We are so excited! I'll be using 1/3 of vermiculite, 1/3 compost, and 1/3 peat moss. The hubby has already put together 3 for me. Purchasing your own lumber, screws, and nails are far more cheaper than buying a ready made raised bed. I definitely want to go for a colorful garden this year. I want to grow a rainbow of carrots, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, etc... I think growing the golden beets last year and the yellow flesh watermelon the year before sparked my interest. I am sure my children will love it as well.
