More raised beds, lettuce, mesclun, and radishes

The two raised beds below the house turned into three, with 'leftover' stone and soil. The third is just to the right of the deck, barely visible in this photo.

The view from above.

And from below.

I tucked the rest of the leek seedlings and lettuce into one bed, and sowed mesclun mix, radishes, and arugula in another.

They're placeholder crops, and probably won't amount to much without frequent watering. There isn't rain in the forecast this week, so I hope that the rich organic soil will hold moisture well. But experiments are fun.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
