By the time I had posted the last update, my wife had planted two tomatoes. In the area where we cleared out the bricks my wife planted Indigo Rose and Red Boar. Apparently this area was plantable because there was a pile of dislodged soil from fishing out bricks and asphalt.
Also, my wife delivered some seedlings to friends on Saturday. I delivered tomato seedlings to my in-law's house.
No updates on Sunday as my wife, mother-in-law and I spent the day in Newport Beach.
I plan to do some digging tonight. We'll see how it goes.
