Another Brick Square Foot Bed

Well I got the second raised bed made. We didn't make it outside until a little after noon and had to come in around 3:30 because of the rain. I dug up the sod and leveled the area, then put down cardboard and hauled the bricks over to stack. I didn't do the leveling for my first brick bed and the difference is remarkable, though it doesn't look that much different in the photo. I used the sod and the soil I dug up to fill some holes created from pulling huge chunks of concrete out of the middle of the yard.

Both beds (new one is still empty)

3 Triple Treat Pumpkins

And the Italian Parsley Has Finally Sprouted!

I just wish the tomatoes and broccoli I planted in the little trays would have sprouted. The ones in the pots were just some of the extra seeds I let the boys plant (which is why there are so many in each pot!) and I'm not even sure how to thin them?! Oh well.
