Because my “shrew paths” led me to stand in front of the raised bed on the right when dumping wood ash and coffee grounds, the raised bed on the left didn’t get any!

So, now I have a controlled experiment, no credit due to me: Both beds get the same amount of sun, and both beds will be sheet mulched, so if I seed both beds with the same varieties (peas, probably), the only variable will be the soil! Will there be any difference between the two beds? (One reason I enjoy gardening is that I can often arrive at a good outcome while only realizing what I’m doing after the fact.)

Something to watch for as the season progresses!
