Here's where we ended:
Doesn't seem like much, but it took us about 2 hours to get this laid out. We figure we'll need at least another 8-9 loads to complete the entire garden area. There are some plants peppered throughout, that we started a couple of months ago, but due to the rain, and poor soil conditions haven't done very well. We're experimenting at this point, so we left them in to see how things progress. What you don't see is the muck! It has rained again, and the ground was already saturated, and this new rain didn't help but get our boots stuck in the mud. We look forward to the layer of mulch, instead of mud.
We'll slowly work on mulching the rest of the garden over time. We're not in a rush, except to finish this main garden area. The other areas are for back up, experiments with crops, etc. When shtf we'll have additional growing space already prepared. We look forward to seeing how this progresses, and we'll keep you posted.
