We requested space to expand, double the space, to another four raised beds.
That area above that is mud and packed clay is just waiting for us to add the wood frames, the landscape cloth, the gravel and then fill the beds with soil.
This, of course, took more than one morning to accomplish. Hubby had to dig drainage ditches below the beds and lay that black pipe in the background once the cloth was tacked down.
Meanwhile I and another much stronger dude shoveled gravel for the paths.
Then the other two worked this gravel over the drain pipes.
I was so exhausted at completion that I failed to get the photos of the final garden...but maybe in the coming weeks once the lettuce and peas are growing, I will share.
