Moving the last garden bed

Moving garden bedsI'm just about done with my quest to consolidate all of the best soil into the sunniest part of the garden.

On the plus side, my gardening workload has decreased because I get more produce from a smaller space.

On the minus side, I haven't had room to plant a single bed of buckwheat all summer. (Fall cover crops will still go in as planned.)

Now the big question --- what to do with the shady spaces left behind? Next time dry floodplains and working four-wheelers align, I'm hoping to drag in another round of livestock panels to build more goat pastures.

Because having Artemesia standing inches away from my sweet corn watching me weed is a good idea...right?
