New Garden Bed Prep

You can't paint fresh fruit and veggies unless you can grow or buy them.... I prefer to grow them.  This bed has been a thorn in my side for years.  The thing is that the trees across the driveway have nowhere to get any nourishment so they sneak up into the tiny little bed next to the house.  It is full of tiny hair like roots and I decided to fight the battle.  I dug the whole dang thing out, put down heavy plastic sheeting, added all the cardboard that was in the recycling bin, all the rest if the leaves in the yard, found an old metal slatted shelf to use as a grate/sieve and sieved out all the roots, rocks etc and was left with a nice, fluffy, compost rich soil to start planing short rooted veggies.  Keep  your fingers crossed!
