Some of the backyard in covered with snow, but the garden is full of spring sun. The forecast says there will be very mild night and good days like 40-50F.
So I decided to make One Good Raised Bed :)
I usually have 1-2 layers of old bricks beds, but this one suppose to be a good example. I hope.
Last year it was a parsnip bed, parsnips were good but short and "hairy". I checked the soil - 4 inches of good loose organic soil and than red clay with rocks.
So I weeded, added lime, peat moss, "black kow", sand, urea fertilizer, 2x4 scrap woods and grid out of cord.
The first transplants are - spinach, chard, salad mix and Asian mix. I also sowed radishes and more spinach.
All the plants we watered with warm water and covered with 2 sheets of row cover.
I have more peas transplants and I will wait till the first rows will survive.
Wishing everyone a nice spring gardening!
