Frames in place, our compost (mostly leaves still) ready to spread and incorporate:
Compost mixed into the top 4 or so inches of the tilled clay soil:
Organic humus, cow manure, garden soil, vermiculite, and peat moss mixed (in layers) in the beds:
We also moved some of the soil from the "old garden" to this spot beside the deck, which we might use to grow flowers:

Taking full advantage of yesterday's gorgeous weather, our neighbor played with bubbles in his backyard. At first Teresa watched from our side of the fence - then she got to experience them first hand when he came over to share them with her!
The bubbles delighted her and enticed her to crawl on the grass (a first). But popping them was not enough - she wanted to wave the wand, too!
