My garden began in 2010 with renting a tiller, planting seeds and seedlings..
In spring of 2011 I decided to install raised beds, but soon became aware of the slope of my garden. Jeff thought we should level the garden and build a retaining wall. That was the beginning of the massive garden renovations:
I had to sacrificed my spring root crops as my previous garden was demolished and buried under 63 tons of dirt:
Unfortunately our wall did not withstand the weight of the dirt:
But at least Jeff had a good time with the Bobcat:
We had to adjust our plan and instead of a single retaining wall, we began a two tiered terraced garden.
After lots of work, a squished thumb nail, and a new found hatred of retaining wall bricks, my garden was built! I had the raised beds I originally wanted, trellises, arbor, and a pretty terraced garden!
By July my garden was happily growing!
