We took an after school trip to Home Depot yesterday and purchased the materials for our garden beds. I felt very indebted to the nice employee who lifted down the sixteen-foot-long 2″X10″ s and 2″X4″ s for me. I would not have been able to do that with a baby on my back! I was also very, very glad that said employee cut the wood into the right lengths for me. (Thank you Home Depot! I did it, but you helped.)
I started assembly yesterday, but my drill was too wimpy to finish the job.

I had to call in the big guns and borrow a ratchet drill from my dad. That made pretty quick work of the boxes today. Might I insert, however, a wee complaint about the fact that the wood seemed a little warped? It certainly did not lay flat. Is all wood like that? Anyhow, here is a picture of the finished squares today. Yay! There is still work to be done, but it feels good to be off and running!
