Next I will break down the old rotted box. It is still a raised bed, but there won't be a box around it.
Now I have all the old wood out of the way, and smoothed out the bed.It doesn't seem raised, but it is.
Then I'll add another layer of compost. I added more than a cubic yard of compost to this bed.
Is this starting to look tedious? I spent three days preparing this bed, and my back certainly feels it.
There is Dusty, inspecting my work, and looking for Grub Worms.
These are Carrots that have been growing all winter in my organic garden. There are a number of things which will grow all winter here in Texas. Most cruciferous vegetables, Onions, Garlic, Oily Herbs, Fennel, and Beets. We did have a really mild winter this year, but there is usually something growing in my garden in the Winter. Maybe eventually I'll be able to build a Hot House and grow Tomatoes in the Winter. I two varieties of Carrots there, the Red Cored, and the typical long narrow Carrots.

I'm going to start this with my regular salad base, Iceberg Lettuce, Cilantro, and Scallions. Its spring now, so those small pickling Cucumbers are in season, so I'll add some of those. Also have some mushrooms, so we'll toss some of those in there too.
