Putting in new raised beds and plants in the spring at my new house in Ashland

Above and below: See bottom paragraph for full description; this is the largest of the two wooden framed beds my landlady had installed for me. I later removed this alfalfa, added compost and other soil, and then put the alfalfa on top again. Below, you can see the trellised entrance to my little house.
Above: I moved here in December 2010; in April or so (can't remember exactly), Some cool things happened. Above; this is a view of the wooden trellis enclosing my front yard/deck area. You can see straw there on either side of the rosemary, which I planted into with various perennial flowers from my old flower field at Full Bloom, which was eventually tilled under to make room for another farming project. You can see the black pots on the right, full of various perennials -- liatris, eryngium, veronica, monarda, echinops (globe thistle), etc.
Above: Just inside the trellised area, there's a sunny little corner. I had sheet-mulched it here with cardboard and weeds, and on this day my landlady, Rabbitt (below) hired a man (also below, can't remember his name) to build the two frames, one of which went in this spot, and the other went in front of my house (top photo). Behind the two of them, under the tarps, is some amazing compost from a compost specialist in Gold Hill named Denny Morelli, full of microbes, forest duff, and various nutrients. Behind them is the truck with the two bed frames. Sorry, I thought I was downloading these in sequence, but they didn't turn out that way.

Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to
know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be
able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.

Appreciate it!
