Juergen and the kids emptied the compost piles into the bottom of our new pallet garden bed. Then they used up the rest of the top soil Juergen bought last fall. Finally I added about 8 large bags of finished compost to the top of the bed. And I planted tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, eggplant, summer squash, zucchini, Swiss chard and even a few sunflowers. I have to get more soil so I can plant the sides of the bed with strawberries and flowers. I think it turned out great! It feels great to finish something so fast.
