Not finished because I had to mow the stupid lawn, but I got the edging installed (I’ll give it three stars) and hauled over the six bags of topsoil that I just bought, plus a bag I found that has been over by the garage for probably two years. My upper back and shoulders know I did it, too, because the bags are 40lb damp weight, and they were all wet! Didn’t take long for the sun to dry out the top layer, though.

 

I also leveled the arch a bit better; it’s closer to the ground than I really like, but I’m going to be growing cardinal climber on it, which (I’d expect) will utterly engulf it, and make for a lot more wind resistance, and I do NOT want this thing to blow over because it’d be an epic fucking nightmare to put back up once plants are growing on it.

Today, assuming it doesn’t rain, I hope to get the bags of garden soil and Black Kow over there, and at least get them mixed in, if not get the seeds planted. I just ordered the cheap wire fencing for the inside so my zinnias won’t fall over and make it an even bigger PITA to mow. It’s already a PITA, but it looks so nice that it’s worth it, and makes it much easier to transition between the height I mow the front yard to look nice, and the fact that I half-ass the back yard on the highest setting the mower will go. 😀 Anyway, we’ll see how much my back and shoulders are willing to do if the weather co-operates!
