Yeah! The garden beds are completed! Brett came over yesterday and helped Grandpa get them started. Then Grandpa spent most of the day finishing up. Quite the project! Very cool-I just looked up from the dining room table and I can see the smaller bed sitting in the sunshine! I drew up a plan and am going to lay out a preliminary garden plan.
Grandpa Frank offered to draw it up on his mechanical computer software. He has been so helpful with gardening advice and excitement. It has really been fun sharing this garden project together (with him all the way in Portland, Oregon!).
Here is a hand-drawn version and the calculations dad helped us with for determining how much soil we will need. The planned placement of plants did not work out exactly but it was fun to try and fit everything in!
