And why is my garden still frozen solid? It is March now, for crying out loud. Winter be gone!
By the way, I just noticed that the picture of the hole also shows you how I use a 6" section of a 4x4 post to fasten together the sides of my raised beds at the corners. I have found this method creates a much sturdier corner than trying to fasten the boards directly to each other so I think it is worth the extra effort and cost in the long run to use this method. Plus, if you want to get all fancy in the garden, you can add a decorative wood finial to each corner. I did that in my center bed, just to make it a little different.
And I am all calmed down now about the hole. I have a plan. I am going to go out there a bit later and throw some frozen compost on top of it to see if whoever or whatever dug it in the first place would dare to try to dig it again.
