New beds

So a while back we added a new 16' x 4' bed by simply loosening up the soil, adding compost, and layering with hay mulch. It's much much cheaper than installing raised beds, but doesn't offer quite as much loose soil. After liking the results of the first bed, we've since extended it an additional 8 feet, for a total of 96 square feet.

We've added more collards, some tomatoes, gourds, and squash to the bed. The tomatoes are kind of a gamble, but if it doesn't work out, we've only lost six seeds.

Our plans include at least three more beds of this size by next spring.
