|I won't bore you with more photos of the construction process. It was easy, the same as BEFORE. I used the raised bed corner brackets, screwed them together with Deckmate screws (rustproof), and rolled them, like square wheels, into position. They are all three feet apart from each other, to make it easier to get wheelbarrows carts and other things in between them.|

This is a side to side view. I did the four on the right last weekend and the last four (on the left) this weekend, before the rain hit. I'm not kidding when I say we literally just got the last one into place when it started sprinkling. We loaded up the car to keep the tools out of the rain and then went to the porch when it started pouring. Work outside done for the day!
Next step comes irrigation. I'm currently figuring out the best way to do it since the water faucet is so far away. Most likely, an underground pipe or hose from the house to the garden area. Once I get it there, I've got a drip irrigation system ready for that end that will, hopefully, work.
Of course, the weather changed yesterday, rained all day again and got cold...down into the 30's during the day. I'm not sure what this weekend's weather will be like. If we wait long enough, it will change. One good thing for sure, the rain will loosen the ground for digging a trench, which will help ease the hardest part of the work.
