So, today I got a lot more done in the gardens outside!  I finished cleaning out the bed i made last year, and I finished putting down the landscaping fabric and edging the new bed along the back of the house.  I also built the frame for my hot pepper bed.

I was quite please with myself building the bed.  A friend donated the lumber for it, and let me borrow a circular saw so I could cut the boards to length.  I pretended not to notice when the older gentleman in Lowe's was trying not to laugh at the idea of lil ole me building anything with a hammer, nails and a power saw.  I didn't cut myself any and I only smashed my thumb once!  YAY ME!

View from the front.
So this is the new hot pepper bed.  Now I just need to get raven to dig up the grass from under it, and flip the whole thing over, driving the little corner posts into the ground.  That will hold the bed still and keep it from getting bumped and moved around.

This is the new bed along the back of the house.  You can see the two new Heirloom Beefsteak tomato plants already in the ground.  I am also planning on putting my sweet pepper plants in this bed.  I had originally wanted to put some peas and a cucumber plant in there too and let them climb frames.  I just don't know if I have the room there or not now that it's done.
