Solving Our Vegetable Garden Flooding Problem

I selected the location for our vegetable garden based the fact it’s the furthest away from the sidewalk and less likely to be raided by kids of all ages. The thing is I never put any thought into how low that spot is.

Well after a few years of being frustrated with flooding each spring and replanting or replacing plants after flooding I decided it was time to raise the veggie garden a few inches to make the north end level with the south end of the garden. So I picked up the phone and called Audubon Organics on Mapleton road Moncton and ordered 2 cubic yards of garden soil, 1 cubic yard of organic compost as well as a cubic yard of mulch.

I am not going to just dump in in the garden. First I plan to dig up the north end deep enough to bury dead branch and yard waste from the winter, all organic of course, and then cover it with a thick layer of garden quality soil.
