New garden bed arrives!

I was very excited this week when this new raised garden bed arrived!
This is on the west side of our house and will be close to the first water tank we own. We are now investigating the best tank for us.
There will be a shade sail over the area in the summer.
We plan to grow asparagus and strawberries, celery and lettuce in the raised bed.
At the back you can see the snow peas which are now growing along the fence.
My Darling man spend a few hours yesterday wheelbarrowing some soil into a heap, which is now in the bottom of the raised bed.
the soil is coming from a heap which has been made by scooping out some soil from the front of our house, where we are going to pave.
