All in a Day's Work
A productive day! We now have a yard full of raised, albeit empty, beds. The result is a really cool looking outline of what our backyard will become. I am indebted to my fabulous husband who committed an entire day to building these beds. I was a pretty good helper, I think. To prep the area, I began laying down linen fabric to block the weeds and old soil from contaminating the new beds, but then I ran out of fabric and commitment, so we now have an experiment to determine which beds are better. When I wasn’t needed to help with building the beds, I was tearing out and discarding my hopelessly diseased grapevine, spreading compost all around, and checking on the kiddos. They did a great job of staying out from underfoot…earned themselves a trip to Berry Winkle!
