The Raised beds are going in!
Mr. Fix-It brought “Big Red” home for the evening and made scooching the garden soil back a breeze. Saved me hours of work. 6 Swipes of the bucket blade and it was done.
He was able to cut the soil back right up next to Isaiah’s green beans (which need picked). I almost felt like Samantha Stevens from “Bewitched” …twitch my nose and it was done.
Good thing he made quick work of it as we weren’t able to start till after 7:30 pm..
With the pealed back like this I can really see where I’ve focused my efforts (and need to refocus)with compost and rabbit poo, that soil is like black gold.
By the time we had the frames placed and lined with cardboard it was pretty much dark. We had a wonderful show of God’s Art work in the way of a sunset poking through the trees…I just wish I could do the colors justice!
He pushed the garden soil back up by the beds so I could filter weeds and put it back in the beds. I thought we were done for the night…
And then he took off across the field for the mound of topsoil.
Remember, I just wanted the boxes about half filled…
Visible proof….. if you ask a man for “just a few inches”,
his perception is significantly different!
It was 9 pm by the time we got Big Red tucked away at the shop and back home.
No complaints from me on the late hour & I think I see a strawberry rhubarb pie in his near future.
I’m on the way out the door with a short pony tailed helper to smooth the soil and weed search.
If my energy holds out I may move those blueberry bushes.
Ahhh, I love being a dirty girl!
