teeny weeny green fronds are peeking up in the garden - carrots! I'll get a picture later this weekend, I think.
We also have soaker hoses laid in - these are new to me, but have teeny holes and get laid out amongst the plants, then just left there. Turn on the hose for 20 minutes and the ground is gently soaked. who knew?
we've decided on the measurements for the new beds and have asked for the parts we need. This thing is moving along better than I hoped, and with far less effort (so far) than I anticipated.
