James raised and attached boxes we had previously had on the ground.  Jared and Christa helped Shannon fill and mix the soil.  Look - no more weeds!

About 1,000 seeds of each peas and beans went into the ground in record time with an assembly line, and the rain came off and on throughout.  James and Rachel watered by 5-gallon jug - by hand.  Hoping for a spigot installation by the end of the week.
