The next step in the preparation of our new garden plot is to frame the centre path. Our garden is 10’x20′ and the beds will be 4’x20′ so that leaves a path about two feet wide, minus the thickness of the lumber. diagram

My job on Saturday was to clear out the soil down the middle. It was beautifully light and easy to dig, but about eight inches down the clay base is rock hard.
