My latest work, as in hard work rather than fun work, has been helping to build, install, level and fill these raised garden beds with dirt. Nothing has actually been planted yet although we're getting close. The plan is to have 36 of these beds ready and planted by early June. It seems almost an impossible task but I am determined to get as much done as possible and let the rest go with a minimum of kicking and screaming. These first four beds are now filled with soil and three of them have chicken wire put up for peas, which will be planted as soon as it is dry enough to get into the garden. The eight assembled boxes from the garage are now in the garden but haven't been leveled or filled yet. So that's 12 of the 36. The lumber with the cats will make 12 more.
The last shot is of four cigar boxes I've ripped apart to try something new. It was fun and messy getting all of the paper off of them.

wow -- that IS a LOT of work! You should take that first photo in Photoshop and pull out the machine - it looks sort of steampunk-y. I hope you just love the raised beds for all this work you guys are doing on them!
