They Come in all Shapes, Sizes

These raised beds, now located in the expanded area of the garden, come in all shapes and sizes!  They will soon be filled with soil and compost.... in preparation for spring planting.

This extra deep raised bed may be used for herbs....  one can almost smell the rosemary, basil and thyme just thinking about it :)

 This almost square bed could be used for vegetables or berries (yum!)

 New walk-through gate, just installed on expanded side of garden

Pictures were taken a week ago on a cold, but beautifully sunny winter day !!

Happy Gardening!
