October 13 - Sunday - Raised garden beds

On Sunday, Nick came over and helped me build new raised garden beds.  We used vinyl coated hog wire and silt fence material to make the walls and we built them around the existing beds.  It's always fun spending time with Nick and we had a lot of laughs while he showed me how to build the beds like his.

Next I have to get a load of compost and use some of the leftover hog wire to make rounded tops to keep the deer out.  I can also put plastic over the top to make a greenhouse that will extend the Fall growing season well into the Winter.  I'm looking forward to growing lots of vegetables.
