This week we had a big project: build our raised-beds and a new compost bin with the epic amount of cinder blocks I have, as well as tending to some of the yard, etc! There were two willing guest helpers: my mom and my dad! They love to be outside and doing projects, which is a lucky quality for us :) We spent all yesterday grooming, pruning, painting, lifting, placing concrete blocks, shoveling, and sweating!
Here's some action shots!

Finished beds (minus compost/soil that is coming tomorrow).
It's kind of an "S" shape, like the beds over at Grow and Resist:
New compost bin!:
Hot damn! :) Tomorrow is soil delivery! Getting projects done feels so good! More project updates to come
