2012/04/08 Vegetable Garden in New Look

I already posted that I built new bigger plot with raising beds and water system but I needed to give up.

2012/04/01 Giving up new plot, disappointing….

 

Now I broke down new plot, re-built and move all plant to old plot. It took me for one whole week. I already got wood boards for double size plot, and I did not want to waste wood boards, so I raised bed so high.
