Day One . . . building a fence

We built this colonial style kitchen garden or "Potager" last year . . . Much fun as well as much hard work!  We will see what surprises the garden gives us in 2010 !

That's just the beautiful vegetable garden I am envisioning. I have to have it enclosed because of the rabbits. What are the dimensions of that garden? do you have mostly herbs and vegetables in there?
Inspiring -- thank you! Happy spring.

We laid fabric block under the gravel paths. (tho I still have chives coming up !)
For the raised beds we just built on top of the grass . . . added good soil, humus and compost and figured over time the grass would just compost itself, which it has. We did dig and turn a little thru the grass to speed up the process.
This year I toped off the beds with more organic soil and compost, and I'm seeing lots of worms doing their work!
We are eating spinach, lettuce and radishes now . . can't wait for all hte other goodies this summer!

I really do love the way you have that all set up. I would like to hear more about your garden. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
