I had wanted to build both raised beds on the same day. This cold still has me whipped. Maybe I'll get out on Sunday and do the other. It won't be this large, that's for sure.
This morning about 9am. I decided to build the front bed first.
It only took 4 hours.
I still need lots of soil to fill the bed for next year's tomatoes. This is the sunniest spot in the yard. No patio here.
See them rocks? Yep, they came out of the trenches I had to dig for the landscape timbers.
Still no constant sun even though weather.com seems to think so.
The white brugs are down.
What am I going to do with 35 cuttings?
Tossed half of them in the compost bin and keep only the 12 largest ones. They'll root easier. They'll stay in the basement under lights in water until root nubs form. Then I'll transfer them to well draining potting soil and pot them individually. This method worked great last winter.
Time for another grilled cheese sandwich and a nap. It's 57 and overcast.
Tomorrow, we will be working on this.
