Sooooo, uh, I knew I was going to dig 6" of soil out of the garden bed and I was going to put that soil near the northern side of the fence. Got it all planned out. Soil from *here* going to *there*. Thought about it all week. Here. There.
What I didn't really think about at all until last night was exactly how I was going to move the soil from here to there.
Which, you can probalby guess, is a pretty important step in both the planning process and in the execution.
Especially if you don't have a wheelbarrow or even large buckets.
