I decided to get a different sort of workout in this weekend.
I’ve just recently returned home from an offsite, and I was full of energy and ideas. Thankfully, the weather has been remarkablly mild. I took my wife and kids over to the local stone and landscaping place near my home. She described her dimensions that she wanted, and they quoted us 1000 dollars for the stone and delivery. I know a bit about stone (particularly concrete decorative, I used to work in Landscaping and I essentially live at the home depot and Lowes of the world). We left and went to the Depot. Got all the stone I needed and a truck to haul it for a third of the quoted price. Then I got to work.
There are a couple capstones that need chiseling, but the main work is done. Last year I did the steprepair, and this year I fixed the flowerbed. I must say my lady is pretty pleased about it
Before my camera ran out of juice, I snapped a couple quick pics.
My tomatoes have just started bulking up since I pruned them a bit. The cucumbers are on their third or fourth picking with no abatement of flower production. The moths and bees are helping quite a lot.
And Bees. I said it! Honey bees are all over my garden. The sunflowers opening up may have something to do with it. So excited. Happy Fourth!
