Hoping for good weather

We planted a final crop in the raised no-dig beds, so we're hoping that September will stay warm. Lettuce, peas, onion in this one, spinach and kale in the other.

This is a no-dig bed, which is a cool way of saying 'we're making new soil here.' The medium is made by layering compost, manure and newspaper. At the end of the season, it will be rototilled into the ground and firmly mixed up, acting as a base for next year's additions. After a few years, it'll be very rich soil.
