The downsized, raised bed in the garden is getting cleared because everything was allowed to run to seed back in the autumn. This will also allow me to hopefully remove invading raspberry cane earlier in the season. It comes over from an adjacent bed.
I will have the opportunity to redesign the soaker hose distribution and re-bury it at a more optimal depth. The deeper I place it, the more it will encourage deeper root growth of veggies.
The garden stakes at the south end of the bed are where I want to plant shelling peas. That way the peas won’t shade anything else.
