Garden Gets 8 New Boxes As we began planning and planting the garden this spring, we quickly realized we had maximized all of our growing space and needed more. Our garden has expanded a bit every year since we first broke ground four years ago, but now we knew a significant expansion was needed. So, we took a few measurements, cleared a little brush, and we were able to add eight new boxes to our plot of land. We now have 28 boxes, in addition to the herb garden that is 12’x36’! First Radish of the Season In addition to being able to provide a greater variety of produce, the expansion will...
