Bad news again from the budget department. Decreasing the size of the paths and increasing the size of the beds means we need more dirt than I planned. As a matter of fact, the amount of dirt needed is exponentially more than I planned. I think my initial calculations (based on formulas found online) must not have taken into account how deep I want the dirt. But, we bought all the wood and built all the beds, so there’s no turning back to the sod cutter plan now! A dump truck load of topsoil it is, and it looks like the shovel, wheelbarrow and I will become good friends over the coming days.
