I'm definitely going with raised beds. I adore Susan Branch's garden on Martha's Vineyard. I could spend all day playing in the dirt!
And let's not forget Mr. McGregor's garden in The Tale of Peter Rabbit...or should I say Peter Rabbit in Mr. McGregor's garden?
Until it becomes a reality, I'm dreaming of raised beds, white picket fences, veggies and herbs, muck boots, dirty fingernails, shovels and hoes, compost, strawberries, manure, sun on my shoulders, seed catalogs, flowers, and weeds.
Hmm...life is good!
