Our granddaughter joined us this day to plant the raised bed. My husband constructed it from repurposed lumber moved over from our old place. We didn't need to go anywhere to buy one thing to accomplish this! That may sound silly to some but after remodeling a 1969 house there is good reason to rejoice! We have made countless trips to Home Depot, Fred Meyer and , Wilco(our co-op farm store)for something that is no longer available!The raised bed sits East and West. It receives direct afternoon sun from the West. Perfect for this kind of growing.
Deciding what to grow wasn't difficult but we needed to consider the small space carefully.
Plant and seed list:1. 4 Roma tomato plants
