Last Locust Planter Bed

It’s been almost a year since farmhand Will and I started to redo the garden.  I wanted to get the hardscaping done by Spring so we can focus on planting.  We are on schedule and now just need to finish the sheet mulching, wood chips, and log borders.

Today, Mike, Will and I moved the large, thick locust logs to build the last garden bed.  The logs were brought over from the neighbor’s house when their locust trees were cut up by a tree service.


I watched a tv show called “Building Alaska” and saw a guy use a dolly and a 4×4 mule to move logs.  I thought we could try it, otherwise it would be impossible for us to move the heavy logs.  It worked!



After moving the logs, I measured and cut them to size.  The bed is 127.25 inches long and about 87 inches wide.  Next weekend, we will add gopher wire and fill it in with compost.
