Sunny SundayApril 14, 2008
I woke up early Sunday and took full advantage of the pretty sunshine and cool temps. I found an electric weed-eater in my shed and it still worked. I also found two long extension cords and weed-eater string, so I was all set. I “ate” the grass all around my trailer, the parking area, and the shed.
After that, I planned to mow, but the battery on the mower died. Oh well.
Instead, I framed out a raised bed. I have these old concrete blocks that are left over from when my grandparents built their barn decades ago. They are not what you normally think of when you think of a concrete block. They are pale in color and smooth and shaped somewhat differently. I had plenty of black plastic left over from when I had a decorative fish pond. So, I put that down as a weed blocker. This week, or weekend, I will get dirt and plants!
I scouted out a new site in the side yard where I will be getting pine straw to mulch my plants after I plant them.
I made a compost bin too. That was super easy. I had dog wire left over from when I (with much help) built a dog pen. So, I just made a big circle, wired it together and set it where I want the compost to be.
I know I will plant one tomato plant, and some herbs, but not sure what else. If it was your personal garden, what veggie would you plant?
