Such joy to have eliminated the dirt & dust
that we and the beagles brought into the house. Now if I can also eliminate
the dust blows in by the wind. Pulling weeds is a never ending projects.
In 2013 we will put in a sprinkler system in the front & side yards
||- Now Betty Sue & Billy Bob
have a 4000 Sq Ft fenced in yard. Billy longs to have free range of the whole
back yard. I let the out when I work in the veggie & Flower gardens.
||- We (OK mostly Hubby)
completed the construction of the 20 raised bed in early 2012. I was able to
get the Victory Garden planted. But didn't have much victory mostly
disappointment. Discovered too late in the game that I had not been watering
deeply enough. Hope I have better luck in 2013. Hope spring eternal for
baseball teams and my garden.
||- Grew so weary of walking on
the dirt/mud pathways, so we had 12 Cu Ft of gravel delivered. We laid down
landscape fabric and added gravel on top. The gravel pathways
around the shop, to the alley, and around the raised beds are a great addition. In 2013 will add a
bit more gravel in front of the shop and under the wooden fence gates.
