Well first off I didn't know it was Father's Day. I was out running the table saw constructing a frame for my lattice and did get a call from my step daughter. That was a nice memory jog anyway. It was going to be 96 degrees so I knocked off early today. I still need to put a board between the two planters and put some weed cloth down in the corner. haven't decided yet if I'm going with rocks or bark.
The little raised boxes are just tall enough to put some real dirt in to get the plants to grow. Underneath is clay. Before adding dirt though I need to water it down and use my weed weasel to loosen the soil...then I mix in some soil ammendment stuff and some decent dirt. That gives about 8" of decent soil for the plants to get started in.
