After a lot of digging, the second bed is ready to plant.
I made two smaller beds on each side. I’ll eventually put down gravel or some large paving stones for that chair and a small table—when I find one. I think we’re going to plant sunflowers in those two beds. And then one more stone wall and a smaller third bed above. But that will have to wait a bit.
We also planted the okra, corn, some green beans, and a poblano pepper today. We also finished a new bed down in front of the house and planted some elephant ears and clematis. We’ve got one more bed to do further in the woods where we’re going to put some astilbe.
As you can see, I’ve got to finish putting stone around the border. That all came from digging out the hill for the terraced beds.
We have Rebekah for one more weekend before she heads to camp on Monday.
Next weekend we have our church retreat. I’m finished with Latin and high school math tutoring. I still have a writing student through the end of June and a middle school math student through the summer. But I’ll be using the extra time to work on the class I’m offering in the fall. I’ve also been asked to think about teaching a high school astronomy class as an elective. Not sure about that one.
