SM was at a loss on Monday. His suppliers were closed (Christmas Holiday) so he ended up doodling around the house instead of "working".
While his slacker wife was snoozing with a nap, look what SM did.
He started the garden expansion! We like the double dig method around here with our hot summers.
All these clods of clay need to be exposed to the air and rain. They'll breakdown in a month or two and then this Spring SM will cultivate it and we'll toss in some composted soil from our local source down the street to help build up the quality of the soil.
We'll have to shift the fence over to enclose the new area and add a small extension to it. I keep going back and forth. Sometimes I want a nicer looking picket fence with a gate, but the shorter "rabbit proof" wire fencing does a great job and all I have to do is step over it.
"Have you bought all your seeds for the year?" SM asked.
"Probably not. It always seems like there's something more to get." I replied. "I'll need to get onion sets and I also need to order the strawberry plants." (D'ya'll have any favorite places to get those?)
We also played a game of keep away with the dogs.
I thought this pic with Casey in the sawgrass was a good one.
I played around with the photo editing on SM's new computer. Lots of fun choices.
