Well, finally the big day arrived. The day we planned to construct the borders of the Children's garden raised bed garden plots. My husband worked out his schedule at the shop so he could help us today. The lumber was bought,cut to size, loaded in the truck and all things were in place. Thank you Brian for all of that.
The day before it was nice out. Really nice. The sun was out and there was a very soft gentle breeze. It felt like spring. Today is another story. We were slammed back into winter. The rain was coming down, the wind was starting to blow and it was cold and miserable. We were even tempted to call off the work day, but we didn't, and now that it is all done I'm so glad we didn't give into the that temptation.
Here is Brian and Angela soaking wet in the middle of the work day.
Miranda and Roselynn helped by potting up volunteer sunflowers plants that were found out in the row where last summers sunflower house was. These two are getting really good at starting plants. We are going to have a good start on the sunflower house now. What a wonderful thing the greenhouse is. They really didn't want to go out in the cold and wet and it's nice and dry in there.
Lane doing his part in the construction. He is helping put together the last box. Lucky for him the rain had let up a bit.
The construction almost done. Just one more bed left to install. Can you see all that mud? Yuck!
The last bed was finished before we went home. Now the garden is ready for the kid's to plant and the Community Garden now has nine three feet by four feet garden plots that are available for it's youngest gardeners.
Future plans include adding to the bean tunnel, a small raspberry patch and a worm bin.
