Building Beds

A few pieces of lumber and some nails and we had beds built! A great family project as you can see...

This is a big deal here on the homefront because we missed this window last year, and planted way to late to get the most out of any harvets.

After the beds were built and positioned, we turned the earth inside of each bed, removed roots and tubers, then filled them with leaves & cow manuer that have been composting together since last fall and over the winter.

Then we watered the dirt/compost mixture heavily and covered them with plastic to expedite further decomposition.

All of this too make the earth rich and ready for receiving what we hope to plant any day now...
