I’ve been working in the hot sun all this week trying to turn my back yard into some semblance of a garden. So far, so good. I’ve only planted one thing – watermelon – but every day I make serious progress on the larger picture. Today I completed the first of three 4×8′ raised beds. Yay! Now that I’ve got one done, the others will be significantly quicker. If they aren’t I’m gonna jump into the first one with a case of beer and an iPod full of Liszt’s Années de Pèlerinage and call it a day.
