I've been talking of expanding the raised beds since the end of last growing season. It's been a rather funny year what with the house on the market and going on vacation the new beds were put on the back burner this spring. Once the other beds and most of the containers were planted combined with no offers on the house I made the executive decision to put the new beds in anyway. Originally I was going to add two more 8' x 10' beds but decided to put in two 4' x 4' beds instead. The intention if we don't sell is to expand again next spring with the two 4' x 4' beds being used for asparagus and rhubarb.
By the end of the afternoon I had the grid strung on the new beds. If you recall I'm using garden twine instead of yarn for the grid this year. I expect the garden twine will hold up a bit better than yarn even though I have used yarn for years. With the beds prepared I was ready for planting after dinner.
