Crispy Critter

I'm not entirely sure that I'm the brightest tool in the shed - because building this raised bed garden has almost broken me. Here are some photos of where I've spent the majority of the weekend - well that and Lowe's!

This is the before shot - this is the west side of our yard, and while we originally planned to put it along the back fence - this actually gets the best sunlight.

The end of day 1... I literally wanted to cry that we didn't get any further.

This is the end of day 2 - we still need to secure the middle section's top, and add the sprinkler system... but it's now ready to fill with the soil...

This is the view from the north side...

The middle is higher so we can plant root vegetables there... potatoes and onions are planned for this section.

A view from the south side...

Another full length shot...
We are exhausted, and crispy... but John is my hero!! I think we are both equally happy with how it turned out - and can't wait to start growing veggies!
