Contrary to what these pictures suggest, I too was actually involved in the garden making process ;)
Luke pulled up the sod with a flat shovel and his polaski, while I raked and shook out all of the soil. After a few hours of intense toiling, we called it quits when we were about half-way done. We plan on finishing the garden bed tomorrow. Luckily for us, mother nature is co-operating and it seems spring has finally arrived. It was a gorgeous day, we couldn't have asked for anything more!
