Garden 2013 - A New Garden Bed

I decided to upgrade my garden from a small raised bed in the front yard to a large in ground area behind the house this year.  I still plan on using my raised bed to grow spinach and lettuce, but am looking forward to a much larger harvest from the back.

Before any planting could be done though, we had to clear out a large amount of weeds & junk.
Looking at the future garden area facing towards the back field.
Looking at it facing the back of the garage and our tour bus.  
As you can see, we have some work to do!

After hoeing up the weeds, I went back through and picked up by hand all the weeds left laying on/under the dirt.
Over half of the garden bed has been dug up and weeded.
All the wet soil you see is from our washing machine.  We originally thought this would be a great place to put the garden because the grey water from the laundry would help water the garden, but have since realized that it keeps this area too wet and will more than likely rot the roots.  So my husband will be moving the drainage pipe to another location soon.

A better view of  how much more we need to dig up.
