Sunday in the yard

Since the weather cooperated today I was able to get out in the garden and start laying out the plans for a cuppla new beds on the south side of the house where the sun is plentiful..
I created a couple of beds 3ft by 12 ft and 3 ft by 5 ft.
On the side of the house I also increased the lettuce and spinach bed to a 3x6 for greater production this spring. I grew spinach and collards last year in window boxes and they took off, so this season I am going to increase the size of the plot.
The soils in the zuch patch is soft down to about 4-5 inches so I was able to turn it. It wont be long. I just need to start working it and adding supplement to it.
All in all a productive Sunday.
