With quite a bit of help yesterday from my father-in-law, we spread a yard of gravel in the yard, then built a 8X12 raised garden bed, filled it with a yard of compost, then two yards of top soil. it should be painted by next week and should have some stuff in it soon. i am a little bit unclear on what i will plant, but have some simple stuff in mind. it was a ton of work and soil isnt very cheap, but it is level, and square should be big enough to get some production out of it. we also planted a few Gerber daisy starts as they are a family favorite. while i try to stay away from posting about things i am doing that arent directly food related, Tolbert was a huge hand, and deserves many thanks, and given some elbow grease, and some sunlight its product should be culinary related soon. enjoy your day.
