making a raised bed border

A scaffolding plank sawn into 4ft lengths, (129 inches to be precise) plus one I made earlier.
 Drilled holes through one end of each piece, butted up the undrilled end of another piece at right angles to the back of the drilled holes, knocked nails through the holes and into the end grain.
 The bed border is not in its final place yet, when (if) the ground dries a bit I can bed it in properly and make paths. (Don't know why the picture went fuzzy, excitement perhaps, because I made it all by myself)
 Three more to go. There are only enough planks there for two more, but two more planks have been paid for and just need hauling up the hill.

Notice the empty ditches for the first time in weeks.
