Well, playing in the dirt, became playing in the mud as we had a weekend of rain and thunderstorms.
Saturday morning started out partly sunny and dry, so Mr. Comforts of Home started building one of 4 raised beds.
Mr. Comforts of Home is an engineer. So we never, ever, ever, ever, ever just plop raised beds willy nilly in the yard. It takes stakes, string, levels, measuring tapes etc to even begin the process.
Though as an artist, I do pick on him for his "everything has to be square and aligned and level" outlook, for my Potager, I think he is absolutely right.
Things were moving right along, until the thunder, lightening and rain started.
It will be a few more days before the French Kitchen Garden gets done.
In the meanwhile, here is a picture of our recent trip to France. This is the gardens of Versailles. Courtesy of one of our friends (Ron S.) we traveled with.
Talk about engineering and making sure everything was in line and level....
