RECENT ADDITIONS TO GARDEN
LOTS OF ACTIVITY AND ADDITIONS TO THE GARDEN
Over the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of activity in our garden. Starting with the need to replace the line’s to the well. That required the Kubota to be here for clean up and allowed us to do several other projects that required the tractor.
Liza now has a Bubbling Frog Fountain.
We had to have new lines put in to the well. From the 70 ft. trench we acquired several large rocks and one BIG one. Now what do we do with them was the question. The BIG one was pushed out to an area we are developing into a garden. The others were placed around the edge of the sock garden.
The Backhoe had all it could do to get this one out of the ditch and move it out-of-the-way. Only other alternative was to try and bury it but determined that would only come up with more rocks. So now we have a new project to place this one and create a new garden around it.
With the help of some other rock’s we have been accumulating and a Kubota we placed the rocks around the garden.
While the Tractor is here we are doing many projects that require it’s assistance. Cleared a way to get small trucks into the compost area, moved some logs to the back side of old garden to be used as retaining wall, dug out some more rocks that we’re coming up in the lawn and doing any thing that requires heavy lifting.
It’s real nice to have a Daughter and Son in Law that let you use their tractor “THANKS”.
Fall is arriving and that means time to do projects like establishing new garden beds for next year. We are still cleaning up from last winters ice storm and the cooler weather makes that easier. Some large trees that have to come down due to Ice storm damage.
That’s it for this post. Still asking you to comment to let us know you are getting Email notices. Or just to say HI and let us know you stopped for a visit.
