I’ve been working on the foundation layer of my raised bed retaining wall. I spent a good deal of yesterday afternoon leveling, laying and shoring the base bricks. I was satisfied with my O shape and calculated the number of bricks I’d need for the second layer. I bought those today. I loaded them onto a cart, into the car into a wheelbarrow, then into the garden. I am two and a quarter bricks short. This implies two discrepancies in my math.
1. I clearly can’t count the number of bricks on the bottom and figure the proper amount for the top.
2. I clearly have messed up the foundation layer to such a degree that the bricks won’t meet on the second row.

The long and short of this is that I’ll need to work this out before I buy the soil. Back to the mud goeth I.
