First, I dug the soil back. Who needs to go to the gym, when you have a garden?
Then filled it up with dirt, and dug it down a bit around the outside. And since we're splitting wood, I've been putting the small bark scraps and stuff in the walkway.
Then I laid some sticks down to help me see the 16 squares. If you take each stick and imagine that it goes the full length of the box, you'll have 16 squares.
Since I was putting broccoli in these two squares, I just dug one hole. For onions or carrots I would do more than one. I also transplanted some volunteer lettuce from the edge of the garden into her lettuce spots.
I only put one thing of lettuce in those spots but think that four would be perfect. We'll plant carrots right in the ground and normally lettuce or spinach too.
Making the most of today.
