This year, just like last, the grow lights are nowhere near as cramped as usual. The main reason for this is that we are revamping the side yard vegetable garden which contains 8 of our raised beds (Area #1). The original plan was to redo that area last year...and then we had a pandemic and most plans, including that one, flew out the window.
So 2021 is the year. All the beds (old and new) in that area will be out of commission for most, if not all, of the season. While the actual building of the beds is a relatively quick process, everything else that goes along with that (such as filling them, mulching the paths and redoing the drip irrigation) takes much more time. And just like last year, I'm planning on doing this at my own pace & not stressing myself out with deadlines. I spoke about my New Approach to the garden last July and I intend to stay the course on that - more enjoyment & less pressure is the name of the game.
