After about a month in the ground, it started to sprout leaves.
Here's another angle / view of the raised beds.
In another bed, we decided to plant rhubarb. We planted 3 roots of rhubarb here. I bought the bareroots from The Christmas Tree shop, it was a great price, 3 bareroots for $9.99. I hope they do better than the ones we bought at Burpee.com. Of 4 roots we bought at Burpee, only 1 came back this year. So far new leaves have sprouted so I'm hoping for the best with these rhubarb. I also sowed some seeds of Swiss Chard. Since rhubarb takes so long to grow and get established, I thought I might as well grow some chard in this bed for the time being.
Even after adding all of these raised beds, I really wish I could add more. It's hard to find space that isn't shady. We have so many trees on our property. I'm eyeing you front lawn...
