Gravel Garden Update
Progress is slow going on the gravel garden due to my crew being busy with other chores. We have removed all the grass and that is it piled on the left side with a mulch cover. It is going to break down into compost for a long border bed going in there. one of the issues we've run into is the dramatic slope of the area. I always knew it had somewhat of a slope, but once the grass was gone it seemed much more pronounced. I am afraid that my harvest table will sit at an uncomfortable slant, so the area needs to be leveled out. On the right side is the beginning of the DG (decomposed granite) that will be used under the gravel as a base. Slowly but surely!
