The new site. I am removing the asphalt and 2" of gravel. Then 12'x24' raised curb 10" high. Will hold 12-14" of soil.... Once I cart it in. I am excited for this location. Full sun with south aspect.

Thank you Jeff for providing your backup starters as almost all my seeds failed to germinate. I had 2 come up 12 days after I sowed them. I planted the 1374 Engle as the main plant. And we'll wait a few days until the weather warms up to plant the backups at the other patch. We've had so much rain that I had to dig out the patch and turn the hotbed manure over underneath has it got saturated and compacted and failed to compost.
