Allan and I went on a tour of our friends Melinda and Phil's 'homestead' to visit the trees we gave them and to see their lovely home. The trees went to the perfect place. They already look healthier and happier. I am so happy about that.
Their gardens were inspiring. Everything is so large and healthy looking.
I took some measurements for the raised beds 'we' need to build. I'm going to do a bed for the raspberries and two 8x4' beds for the strawberries. I'm undecided as to whether I should do the main vegetable garden in raised beds or a simple lasagna garden. Melinda gifted me the book Lasagna Gardening, so I'll do some more research before I decide.
