Miri had been wanting a small area specifically for vegetables for a while, but we hadn’t figured out where to put it. When Cassie and Britton were here, Cassie suggested the flat area just behind the patio, between the ylang-ylang trees. We thought this was a great idea.

That area was fairly bare and weedy as it was one of the last places to have a digger working on it, so it needed a make-over. First we moved the ylang-ylang trees a bit further apart to give us more room, then Miri weeded while I built a stone surround (to both define the area and also stop the slope above from eroding into the veggie patch).

Its looking a lot better already, even though we haven’t spread out any good soil or planted anything yet. Thanks for the idea Cassie!
