New Garden Bed Prepared.
http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?SXJII 22 September 2008 New Garden Bed Prepared.

The center bed was enlarged by about 100 square feet. The method: Sod removed, area hand spaded, chunks rototilled, sod put through chipper/shredder to kill grass roots, compost added and mixed, wood chips added and mixed, planted in double cut red annual clover. The bed should be in excellent condition for planting in the Spring of 2009. Total labour time after sod was removed was 4 hours and 10 minutes.
