Raised Beds and Coldframe

Alright. We finally have plants in the ground here at Casa GrowingSimple.

We were planning a Spring Break trip to Florida to see family, but the transmission in our van poo-pooed that idea for us. So my boys and I spent the weekend building two 4'x8' raised beds, mixing the soil (no doubt, the hardest part), filling the beds, installing the coldframe and planting a few plants -- all before the cruddy cold rains rolled in on Sunday evening.

Here's a video of the beds and a little of the work we did. WARNING: this video was all shot by my five-year old, Seth, so the footage is a bit jumpy. Think Cloverfield.
