This is the start of my garden. Well, not really the start, but close to it. My plot size is 15′ x 50′. The vegetable portion (closest) measures 15′ x 35′. The remaining 15′ x 15′ area is set aside for Herbaceous plants. After receiving the plot, I edged the sides and hand-tilled any existing weeds. I then built my raised beds and began to add compost.
