Here's a mini break-down of our weekend and of our garden in numbers:
1800 # of pounds of concrete retaining wall bricks used.
124 # of feet of lumber used for the raised beds.
Sigh. I'm getting exhausted just thinking about all the work we did. Well truthfully, I.S. did most of the heavy-lifting but it's hard not to just let him do most of it since he seemed to effortlessly lift the 20lb bricks with one hand while I struggled to carry one with both hands.
It started to rain when we unloaded the compost and soil so I will need to fill up the beds and plant stuff later this week when the rain clears up. For now, I will take a break and enjoy the look of our raised beds (regardless of the fact that they are empty).
