Looking to the Maine Summer

All over our town, the lilacs are in bloom. This is the sole lilac bloom from our two lilac trees.

This is my husband's new summer project.

We have very little sun on our property because of all the tall trees. In fact, 95% of the sun in our yard falls on the leach field. No gardening allowed on the leach field. So maybe by putting the garden up higher, closer to the sun, the veggies will grow.

And no, that's not his reasoning for building this thing. Rather, it's the crappy, sandy soil in our yard. But having it higher can't hurt, right?
