I worked on the raised bed today, and it's all ready for planting. details can be found by following the "after" photo to flickr and clicking through the day's photos.
i think i want to grow herbs mostly. i may relent and put up a single bamboo teepee for a tomato and some string beans, maybe a little lettuce underneath (i have heard that salad greens don't like to be pounded by the sun too much, but i will have to check on that).
just think of it though... big piles of parsley, cilantro, and basil and the resulting masses of salsa and pesto and salad rolls. mmm yeah. twelve different kinds of mint mean twelve different kinds of mojitos and mint juleps. and catnip toys for days.
