Getting High Tunnel ready to plant

Yesterday was a wonderful day to work in the High Tunnel.  It was rainy and cool.  We were able to weed the amended beds (Picture 1 shows the weeds),  Add more compost and soil and level out the total house and put down a center mulched path. (Picture 2)  Then we started forming the beds which run perpendicular off the center path approximately 4' wide and 9' long with narrow foot paths between (Picture 3).  We are amending the beds with minerals and a little compost   So today we will finish forming the beds and plant, plant, plant.  We are trying different vegetables so see how things grow since this is a new adventure for us.  We are excited.
