On a Roll

After two more days of working on the wall I've now completed the entire left side and started on the portion that runs up the right side. We also filled in the back side of the wall with soil to make a level plot behind it for our garden. The whole thing is really starting to take shape! Once I finish the right side, which should only take a few more days, the following will need to happen:

- Fence the area and add a layer of rabbit wire to keep critters out
- Spread a layer of topsoil
- Build raised beds for the garden
- Plant veggies!

Here are a few pictures from today:
