Container 1 is getting close to done. All six corners of the frame are level.

I installed chicken wire underneath as a gopher countermeasure and started mixing the soil for the container.

I need 32 cubic feet to fill each space. The dirt that I dug up is pretty heavy. The first six inches, where the gophers live, was well turned up. At about a foot it was so compacted it might as well be rock. So I’m mixing in roughly 8 cubic feet of manure, 8 cubic feet of coconut husk, and then 16 cubic feet of the original dirt (after sifting for rocks).
