On Tuesday, I really got my summer started. I figured if I wasn't going to be in a windowless room, I would take advantage of my freedom by building a retaining wall for a raised flower bed. Why not? What more fun could I have on my first real day of summer than excavating and leveling a trench, then single-handedly moving one ton (literally one full ton) of limestone into place to form the wall? This was my first attempt at doing anything like this and I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Now I need to get soil to fill it in, plant something cool, then reseed the grass around it.
