Hi folks! I took advantage of the nice weather in New Hampshire yesterday to take pictures of my yard (new house we bought in November) throughout the day. I now know where the shadows cross my yard and which parts of the yard get the most sun/shade. Woo hoo! :)

Now I'm starting to think about how to put in raised beds. Is there a general rule about digging up the ground below the beds? I assume you have to do at least a little digging so that there isn't a hard line between the new dirt and the old ground. How deep do you have to dig for 6" or 12" high beds?

Thanks for all the great info, btw. I've had lots of fun reading past posts.

Rebecca
