The whole family worked together to plant this bed! The bed is really a frame because it's just made of 2x4s. We tilled the entire area, watered it deep and then covered it with a tarp to kill any grasses, weeds, or diseases. Then 2 weeks later we piled on 5 wheel barrows full of mostly finished compost. Cooked it for two more weeks and then tilled again before putting the frames in:) Then I added manure just to the beds:) The kids helped me plant bush beans, basil, cilantro and flowers! You can't see most of it because they are still seeds:)
Along the back near the house I plan to plant some tomatoes or peppers:) I need to get those started indoors soon!
Love my little helpers:)
