We've got dirt! Like, a lot of dirt! It took Hugh several trips to the soil dealer and cost more than I can admit without wanting to throw up, but, we've got dirt!
The small planter that catches the run-off will be full of zinnias, which will help entice pollinators to the garden; I am planning to plant those seeds this weekend, along with the other seeds that I have gathered and the vegetable and herb plants that are currently residing in my garage.
The only thing left for Hugh to do is to construct the wire arch that will serve as a trellis for my climbing plants, but; that doesn't need to happen for a while, yet. He is also going to lay some cement pavers on the ground, next to the shed. This will create a level space where I can set a small table and chair, for days that I feel like coming to the garden to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine while the birds and bees visit those zinnias that I mentioned a minute ago.
At least, that's how it goes in my dreams, anyway. Time will tell, but, in the meantime, we've got dirt!
