Garden Progress

Tonight, I finally made a little progress, if minor, on my garden.  On the bed I have decided to fill up this season, I chopped up the dirt I got late last year from the landfill that was in there because it has become a little hard-packed and awful, and I didn't want a nice hard layer of dirt causing a bunch of erosion under my good soil on top.  I then emptied and mixed up the compost, manure, etc. that I got from Home Depot the other day, and dumped it in the bed.  I estimate that I'll need another 12-15 cubic feet of soil to fill the bed, so even if I can't get another discount on busted bags it'll only cost me another $40 at the most.

That's really the only update I have for the night.  I had my first day of orientation for my new job today, and it went well, but it was nothing special.  All the usual stuff you'd expect from your first day at a new job: this is the company, the mission statement, the core values, what to expect day-to-day in your job, etc.  The highlight of the session was my store manager.  The more I get to know him, the more I like him.  He actually reminds me of me in a lot of ways, so I think we'll get along well, and maybe that'll even help me with my career.  I have day two of orientation tomorrow, if anything exciting happens I'll make sure to post it, but I think nothing particularly special will happen until I head up to Phoenix next Sunday for my training at an existing store.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!  Thanks for reading!
