Rockin' the beds

Sounds saucy, I know, but what we're talking about was far from romantic.It's tough to set the mood when sandbags and wire worms are involved.

As co-presidents of Jubilee Community Garden, this year Katie and I along with the other gardeners decided to build a couple of raised beds for people with mobility challenges.

After moving about 600 sandbags (twice!) to use as fill and shoveling more dirt than I care to think about, there was still more work to do.

Gardeners Fred, Ken and Rose (combined age of 250) helped us put the beds together and fill them. At 89, Ken can out-shovel Katie any day.
If it weren't for those three we'd still be there.
The following are a few photos of the festivities.
