Keith and I braved the cold weather last Saturday morning (28 degrees F when I checked at 8AM) to drive over to the dirt place (twice) to pick up a total of three and a half cubic yards of special soil to finish filling the last two raised garden beds. Okay, so we didn't actually manage to leave the house until 9:45am, but I'm not sure that it warmed up all that much between 8AM and 10AM.
However, it warmed up A LOT (or maybe it was just me who warmed up) once I started shoveling dirt from the truck bed to the wheelbarrow. Funny how that works, right?
Here's our finished vegetable garden. It was a lot of work, but I'm really looking forward to the extra growing space next year. There are six new raised garden beds, each 4 ft x 12 ft x 10 in. The two beds on the left have have some lettuce, spinach, and Halloween-planted garlic, so we covered them up with straw for the winter. We also covered all paths with cardboard (until we ran out) and straw.
Now I just need it to be next spring already so I can start planting the new garden!
