and most of bed 4. I cleared the area where bed 4 would be installed.

I started the day by going to the hardware store to pick up some more wood screws to complete bed 4. The sky is starting to cloud over, with the threat of rain later in the day. The plan is to get both beds installed and potato bin 3 and maybe a 4th one if there is room built before the rain.
Bed 4 is in, now it’s time to move all that dirt into the bed so I
can clear the area for bed 3 Remember what I said yesterday
about not needing to go to the gym….
Out come the pavers and the old trellis. They will all be put to good use later.
Bed 3 goes in and half the soil from bed 4 brought in. I had enough soil from the flower bed to fill both beds about half way. I topped them off with organic compost and organic garden soil I picked up at the hardware store.
Making sure the trellis is the right fit.
Turns out bed 4 had to be brought down to a 7 x 4 bed. The pole holding up the fence and the way the fence is built in that area only gave us 7ft 3inches to work with. Bed 3 is a perfect fit at 8 x 4.
The 3rd potato bin is in. I was hoping to fit a 4th one
but it would be a tight fit and would leave me with
little room to get to the end of bed 3.

I finished putting all the garden tools away and made my way into the house about 5:10... at 5:18 it started to rain.
A big thank you to my sweet husband for all his help this weekend.
