Get the keys today. I biked over yesterday morning and measured my dirt - I have close to 400 square feet of usable dirt that gets sunlight. I'll try to stick to a tightly planned layout a la Square Foot Gardening.
I have heard absolutely nothing from our landlord. The rent is due today, but with no evidence that our deposit exists I'm not sure what to do. I may pedal over to our bank and deposit the rent into an escrow-type account to hold in his name until we see that the deposit exists.
Lots of work to do. Boring blogging ahead!
