First things first. For weeks, the only piece of furniture I had in the house was a bed. I was happy with that. Ate in it. Read my gardening books in it. Watched movies in it. Didn’t really need anything else. Better start making beds outside.

I built the beds around the soil. In hindsight, not the smartest thing to do but I wanted them in place before winter set in.
