Last night, the kids were gone (THANKS, MOM!!!), so Jason and I worked on upgrading the garden. He took cedar planks, cut the to our 4’x8′ bed length, stacked em 3 high and nailed them together with stakes. They look so cool! The old way was just making a 4’x8′ rectangle one high and stacking them on top of each other. This is so much faster! I’ll post a pic when we get them up.
I sat out and worked on my microdripper system. I LOVE my microdrippers/sprayers! It’s the only way to fly when you have a garden. I upgraded my minisprayers to those with a valve built in, so if that bed is not in use, I can shut off the water to it. Then I added a couple of new ones to a grape vine and to an ornamental bed I have on the sideyard. We covered our yard in hay, so I buried all the lines under the hay. These systems are so easy to install, I think everyone should have them!
Anyway, we’re waiting for a chimney sweep to come this morning. I’m interested to hear what he says about our chimney. I am sure it’s pretty disgusting looking.
Lastly for today, I’ll share a website with you:
We watch this show on RFDtv. Bill’s moustache must be 4 feet across, seriously! They do chuck wagon cooking, using our favorite pot; the Dutch oven. We can’t wait until fall when we can once again make fireplace beans and soup!
