Bench update

The soil is in.  It is the native soil that will need some amendments over time to keep it rich enough for a raised bed, but with a little peat moss added in and a bit of potting soil to lighten it up, the SOIL is IN!  I went ahead and planted a few herbs I had picked up in the live herb section at the grocery store.  I am not sure they will be able to make the adjustment but no harm in trying.

I dropped in a celery that had been cut off.  I have grown several in a bit of water but never tried it putting them directly into soil.  Its an experiment.

James went ahead and planted the seeds for peas, collards, spinach and radish in the bed. From the inside this looks to be the grandest window box ever.  There is nothing like getting your hands in the soil and putting those little seeds in.  003
