On Friday we were finally able to locate the rest of the compost and vermiculite we needed to fill the beds.  It’s not much fun mixing Mel’s mix, that’s for sure.  Poor Al had to do most of it….I couldn’t even lift the bags of compost because they were left outside and were frozen solid!



At least I was able to open the bag of straw and lay down a few more inches of mulch on the garlic to keep them nice and insulated for the winter.  I couldn’t help but do a little investigating before I added straw, though……
