Vegetable boxes

Nowhere near finished but these are filled and seeds planted. Lettuce, carrots and beetroot in the big one; peas, mange-touts, and green beans, cucumber and edamame in the others. (Yes edamame. I found baby edamame plants at the bargain grocery store.)

Made the boxes a couple of weekends ago, from parts of the demolished entertainment center (see earlier, March 3rd). They will not last forever: it's not wood that's meant to be outdoors. But for this summer, they'll do the job, and anyway one day the vegetable garden will be over the other side of the property, between the orchard and the creek, in the sunniest spot. But for now, these will work fine.

Still have to put the mulch down to be the paths around them.
