And I am tired. After shoveling all the mushroom compost from the back of our truck, I went on to build two more SFG beds. I already built one earlier in the week. I am new to using my husband's power tools, so it has been a huge learning curve. AFter building the other two beds, I had enough wood left over to build a 3x3 bed for strawberries. Tommorow I am going to put a bottm on it so I can put it on a table I have. I learned a lot about power tools. The number one thing I learned is that even tho I like power tools, I am not good at using them. Tonight I am happy, proud, and exhausted. Now to get one more kind of compost, and then I can start mixing and filling the beds. Almost there!

Don't feel bad. I am completey wood challenged. So although I can make a 4X4 square box that has MM thrown in it, I do not even strive for perfect square or level! LOL. I even stomped away from one and left it sit for three days before I could face it again. You deserve to be proud!
