Ready for Spring Planting

Are you ready?
Here are a few photos to illustrate how good basic design will enhance your garden's appearance and productivity. This beautiful garden is at Davenport Ridge ES in Stamford,CT. Beds for early vegetables, for herbs, edible flowers, and more flowers for their beauty and fun. Sunflowers anyone?
Notice the beds of varying shapes and heights and angles. And birdhouses to bring in nature and additional visual appeal and the "ooh" factor. 
Time to: clean-up, amend the soil, set out the first tender plants or seeds: peas, lettuces, radishes, carrots, chards,  etc. Let's get growing!  'Tis the season.
