On Friday, we had 5 cubic yards(!) of both soil and mulch delivered to the house, then on Saturday morning, we went to the Raleigh Farmer’s Market and picked up a bunch of new plants. We found herbs and flowers for the new planter boxes, some new perennials for our other raised beds, and hanging ferns for the front porch. After a quick beer and lunch at Flying Saucer it was time for manual labor!
