Construction Projects vs. Sewing

Although I continue to do some sewing, this summer is shaping up to be a summer of construction.  Our initial project was to finally make the raised beds we've been talking about for years.

For this project we were able to use all recycled materials.  The wood was salvaged from an old grain elevator and the galvanized metal linings for each bed came from our own "salvage yard".

We filled them with compost that we've been accumulating over nearly 19 years.  Just some bark pathways to put down...

and the end result is that I have 10 lovely raised beds to plant!
