Wow! That looks great!

Is that just plain dirt on the ground under the boxes?

We spread 10 yards of loam on the ground first to level up the area. I know, waste of good loam. Then we put down a layer of weed block and set the beds. Ran out of weedblock 2/3 of the way through so I used some roofguard I had laying around. We then filled in around the boxes with some peastone. The boxes aren't centered in the frame, but we plan on putting potted flowers along the left edge to balance it out.

I was thinking the same thing about the tractor. Wow, that would make some quick work of some things on my to-do list.

My wife did most of the tractor work. Did some stump removing, moved a pile of rocks, moved a woodpile, and filled in some deep large holes in the ground. Stopped by a nursury and looked at the veggie seedlings they have ready. A few more weeks yet.

Get an orange tractor; green isn't what it used to be! Wink

What? Did John Deere go foreign?

cachecrashers4, I was thinking that leveling the area before you put the boxes in was a great idea. It sure looks great.

Kubota makes orange tractors. My dad has one that is around 40 years old. Smile

I really need to get to work on my garden. I've still got some patches of snow, so haven't started anything outside yet. My kitchen counter, however, is another story! It is absolutely covered with seedlings. Very Happy

Wow! That looks fabulous! Do you have plans to keep the critters out? Looks like there is potential for some deer on your property.
