aren't those raised beds done yet?

Despite the fact that my helpful hands are in Tuscon, there's actually been lots of progress on the raised bed - the handyman sent me photos to prove it. Okay, okay. My hands really aren't that helpful when it comes to swinging hammers, but I want to point out that even the handyman didn't have to swing a hammer with that fancy-pants nail gun/air compressor he borrowed.

Speaking of helpful hands (mine in particular), anyone remember that wood from Craigslist? Well, it's being put to good use as the walls of the raised bed.

And just to be clear, we don't have stock in ekocompost. That whole 20" high space won't be filled by dirt. There'll be a walking space starting at the little opening on the side (the side that looks like it goes into the yard). There are several walls to come on the inside so the final shape will look like a fancy "c."

So, the answer to the earlier question is "not yet, but soon!"

Holy Moly!!! That's quite an ambitious project you have going on there. I'm very impressed so far and can't wait to see the finished product.

Oh my gosh! What a great project. That is so exciting. And with a good compost bin, that sucker will be full before you know it.
