Pallet Cleansing

1 dumpster-dived pallet + 1 hammer + 1 hand saw + buckets of sweat + a few scrapes + a couple of bruises + a tiny bit of blood + a pinch of swearing + much praising of Allah azza wa jall, without Whom I would have neither the strength nor the ability =

It’s not the prettiest take-apart ever, the cuts aren’t the cleanest ever, but that doesn’t matter much. InshaAllah come next planting season, that pile of wood + a bit of time + a drill + some screws + loads of topsoil and manure will = a shiny new raised bed…

InshaAllah my muscles will have healed up by then and the ache in my hands will have subsided.

Allahu Akbar.
