Planning a vegetable garden

It has been several years since we have had a real vegetable garden and not a few tomato plants in pots. This year we are using the space G used for his nursery and we are going to put in a few raised beds.

G decided to use the tables he had for raised beds. These originally came from Ballard Market. They were used in the produce area for displaying potatoes, etc. They have been great tables for the past 10 years. But they are also good frames for small beds for vegetables. Just turn them over and cut off the legs.

We are going to have to lay them out on landscape cloth because that area has a bad case of horsetails. Hopefully the landscape cloth will keep them down a bit. As soon as the ground thaws a bit from our recent freeze, G will level the ground.

Now to decide what to plant.
