K skipped fishing on his day off…mostly because the weather was supposed to be rainy and grey, and instead did a little digging in the yard. Since the weather is ideal for some work that would make a person a little sweaty, K figured he could get the next bed dug out for me.
The natural slope in the hill has a bit of a fan shape or angle to it, so we are making our beds fan out. These new sections that we are digging in will all end…or start…close to the base of the path. They are narrow from that point, and get wider as they reach the fence line.
K is also going to start the next bed. It will be the last one that we cut in on that side of the yard. Basically, we would like to have as much done as we can this year, and what we can’t, ready and setup for the spring. I do have one small section that I still need him to cut in on the upper side of the path to split the width of one of the beds. It is also quite sloped, so I want to cut it in half to minimize the water loss off it and flatten it off as much as possible.
It’s nice to pick up our momentum with the yard again. We lost it a bit when we went on vacation, but now the weather is ideal for work in the yard again. Because of the weather, most of our plants have been harvested with our onions, tomatoes, potatoes and strawberries still growing. We will have to take those all out soon, and tear down the beds for preparation of the new beds/privacy wall that I would like to build in the spring.
