We have a concrete theme going on around our house.
We've made concrete flower beds
and entry walls.
We've stamped concrete
and carved concrete
and this weekend Lyle was back at his concrete mixer once more.
The wood around his raised vegetable beds was falling apart, so in his quest for something sturdier, concrete fit the bill. He first made forms
and then lined the forms with crinkled tin foil
and then hired the kids for some manual labor.
The girls crinkled tin foil to press on the top.
and while it hardened up a bit, a cute kid ran down and posed for a picture
(not necessary for this project, but a nice addition),
And they waited and waited.
The forms came off, and we did some carving with rebar,
We have a raised concrete bed.
Only about 10 more to go.
