Building Raised Vegie Beds - Done!

We'd cleared three days to build our raised vegie beds, and were pleasantly surprised to find that by lunchtime today (Sunday) the beds were DONE. Very happy with that, of course, and happy to tick one task that has been on the to-do list for too long off.
The job was made easier by the fact that the timbers were all of equal length and square, and the planks for the ends had already been cut, so that saved a lot of time. AM was also using a bolt that screwed straight in, without having to drill and countersink holes separately. Another time saver.
There was a fair bit of soil shoveling done. I was happy to see plenty of nice fat worms in there. I also planted this years' garlic in there. Another job done.
It was sunny this morning, but the cloud has come over this afternoon. I'm planning on some sewing and photo-sorting over the next few days.
Hope you are having relaxing weekends.
