A New Garden Bed

Jeff and Ava replanted the garden today.
After several attempts to grow vegetables in pots we decided to see if a garden bed in the ground would work better. The herbs have done pretty well but everything else is just hanging in there and not producing any veggies.

We found a good spot next to the downspout which gets several hours of full sun in the afternoon. It is hard to find the right balance between sunshine and baking hot in the Arizona desert.

Here is where we are so far. Next step is irrigation and a little sunshade.

I'm so envious of that garden bed! I'm still in the growing-things-in-pots stage!
