|Isn't that kale gorgeous?|
This is what we started with at the beginning of August:
|overgrown concrete pad full of weeds and saplings|
|Slow progress, but looks much better!|
I still need to weed the remaining plants that are growing through the cracks, as well as apply white vinegar so that they don't grow back again. I ordered a 100-foot roll of weed barrier from Amazon, and I'm going to double it over the concrete, once I've filled gravel between the deeper cracks to level them.
We're trying to plan on the number of raised beds we'll need to grow all of the food we'll need to harvest for a year. I'm thinking we're going to need eight to ten 8x4-foot beds. I received my seed order from High Mowing Seeds, and I've divided them into seeds that are directly sown and seeds that we'll start in February.
