Beams, hop pole in the background.
Beams laid out.
Plot number 1.
I manually turned over the soil. Dug down a foot to a foot and a half and buried the grass. My assistant slowed progress by performing an anthropological study of what we found down there. Was actually some interesting stuff - a rusty trowel of indeterminate age, glass and charcoal fragments, an old bottle - intact! Interesting. The bed looks pretty good, although there are a ton of roots in there. Next we have to add some compost.
Still no fence. Perhaps next weekend.
Garlic is looking great. Problem with the peas - some of them ended up sitting on the surface of the dirt. Weird. I covered them back over a bit, then poured a pail full of potting soil over them - just a thin layer. one of the ones on the surface had sprouted slightly. Good progress. Some of the peppers Jill planted indoors have sprouted as well.
