Another blistering hot day on Saturday. We began at 7am, and didn't leave the compound until 7:30pm. It was a long scorching day. We took a 15 minute break for lunch. But, the stone that needed to be hauled and placed around the pond to hold the liner in place, is done. We probably shoveled and moved over 50 wheel barrels full. The garden fence, a 45' x 24' area has 14 posts, a gate and 6' wire fencing, is done!!!! The Moose, dug each post hole with a post hole digger by hand. And it was his sheer will, especially towards the end, that got these projects done.
Now, we have to finish tilling, add some compost, and start marking rows for plants. I have some tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, celery and brussel sprouts started. I hope to have them planted next weekend, along with some others. We're in the middle of planting for the cool season.
