space between beds

we have raised garden beds in our front yard, 
where we grow our veggies. 
who is featured in the june 2011 issue of sunset magazine! 

i added in a round stone bed, 
followed by another square one made by ryan, 
using our friend denise's old fence. 

i haven't been able to decide what to do in between the beds. 
mulch? straw? decomposed granite? stones? gravel? 

so as you can see, it's been a little bit of mulch and a little bit of weeds. 

i finally decided on stones, 
set in decomposed granite with thyme growing around them. 

we already had the stones in the back,
and we have a pile of decomposed granite. 
all i had to buy was flowering thyme. 
a couple of hours of digging dirt, 
hauling stone, 
shoveling d.g.,
planting the thyme,
and i was done! 

two more spaces between beds to go. 
but i feel better knowing what will go there.
