Filling the Strawberry Beds

strawberry-pyramid-filled

Recent progress – The strawberry pyramid is filled with compost. The timbers for the other beds are in place and level.

We filled the strawberry 4×4, 5 tiered bed first because I needed to get the strawberry plants in the ground. These had been delivered 3 weeks ago – Fort Laramie and Albion species plants.

Leveling the Wood Frames on the Landscape

I leveled the earth and bermed the raised bed boxes to be level resting on the ground.  The backyard slopes downward toward the back of the yard but I wanted the raised beds to be level, so I laid a foundation of landscaping timbers, leveled them and then placed the pre-made raised bed frames on top of these.  Sounds easier than it was!
