The small fenced-in garden area is actually part of a larger stacked stone raised bed with room to expand the garden in future years. The bed is located at the bottom of our front yard (the fenced-in portion in the pic above is all the way to the right):
So my plan this weekend is to remove all the weeds, mint, and other debris, work some organic matter into the soil, and fix the fencing (we get tons of deer and other critters in our yard). Is there anything else that you would recommend to prepare our garden for planting? And what about choosing which vegetables to plant? I know I’d like to grow some lettuce but what else would you recommend that’s an easy grower? Any and all advice, resources, or tips for this gardening newbie would be so appreciated!
I hope that you all have a great weekend that all of you moms enjoy some well deserved pampering! I’ll let you know how things go with the garden!
