Potager Constructions - Day one, Rock, Paper, ...Digger?

This was the day when the paper hit the pavement (or in our case the grass.) All the potager plans we have been noodling with are about to become a reality.

First we marked out the plan.
If you look closely you can see the red flags and the orange marking paint.
Next we checked the level to see how much dirt needed to be moved.
(Note the little yellow digger in the background. I REALLY want one of these!)

(C is pretty sure I should be!)

It's a big job but I have lots of great help.

This is what it looks like now.
Time to go do chores.
(Sorry the picture is a bit fuzzy. It's starting to get dark.)

Tomorrow we get to finish digging and deal with 15 tons of crushed limestone. That all has to be spread, leveled, and compacted. Should be a fun day. Hope it doesn't rain!
