Last Saturday we finally had enough dry weather out here for Heather and I to get the last step in the caged garden done:
All nine boxes are in place and Heather has planted mostly vegetables. Tomatoes on the left front, peppers in the front center, herbs right front, then some green leafy things that I am supposed to eat (they’re healthy I am told) and somewhere there are some carrots and sweet peas that were planted from seeds.
The outside of the cage still needs a bit of paint on the trim and Heather hasn’t hooked up the drip irrigation yet.
Bonus picture – I saw this on my walk by the creek today:
Had to make it out in this photo from my iPhone from about 100 yards away, but it’s a buoy from the reservoir just a mile upstream. It’s one of a set that warns boaters where the spillway is. Guess the recent rains and flooding broke it lose sending it downstream.
Hopefully nobody’s crazy enough to be out on the lake near the spillway in this weather.
If you need me – I’ll be in the garden,
