We finally built the frames for our raised beds today! Having *finally* decided on a plan, I ran all over town tracking down lumber, had it cut to the right lengths, and hauled it home. Then Tynor and I worked on getting it nailed together. Voila! Garden beds. :D
Next up: How to haul enough dirt and compost here to fill them.
Rolly came over with his mom and sister and enjoyed helping us carrying the boards to the backyard and move planks into position. He clearly wanted to help hammer them together too, but with 3-inch nails and tricky positions holding the board ends together, it wasn't to be this time.
Rolly had lots of fun with his cousins when he wasn't helping us with our construction project (or checking "just one more time" to see if the hens had laid any more eggs :P).
Niall brought some gak outside, and he and Rolly enjoyed rolling it in their hands and (in Niall's case) pretending to stick it in people's hair. Har har har, Niall. :D
