Yesterday I posted about the new raised beds going in. The beauty of raised beds is they are easier plant and maintain as well as being easier to protect against critters like rabbits. If rabbits are a problem the bed is already raised by at least 8 - inches so simply adding low fencing meant as garden edging that is about a foot tall around the inside perimeter at the soil level is high enough to deter rabbits. Even nicer is only those beds with plants the rabbits are attracted to need protecting.
The two new beds increased my raised bed growing space to 112 square feet, just slightly over the 100 square foot garden challenge. It is surprising how much a 16 square foot garden bed can produce so the growing space I have while less than my previous garden is still quite productive. I'll post more about the garden's progress over the growing and harvest season.
