    Thanks, she stained the first one after we finished it.
    Thought we didn't have enough room to plant much.
    We decided to expand. We'll see how this goes and may expand again later.

    I used raised bed soil and and bought some manure for when it settles. What mulch are you using?

    We just bought a bale of straw at Atwoods
    Only used about 1/2 of it, maybe less, in both of those beds.
    If you get to Tulsa I will bag you up some. 0FF0B1F7-44D4-42EA-B29E-44C50EDC7166.jpeg B658307E-4741-4A6A-827D-CFA8D29CB11B.jpeg

    I have to warn you, the straw we got at Atwoods was wheat and has lots of wheat kernals in it.
    They popped up in about 2 or 3 days. Wheat growing everywhere!!!
    So the wheat straw needs a good thrashing!!
