Preparations for winter and more...
Most of you remember my efforts at making a lasagne bed last spring. I dragged 12 long boards from Nolon's slab pile to the old garden spot. I arranged then into two long beds, and filled them with leaves and compost. Well... I never did get back to them, and they rather 'went to pot', so to speak. Yesterday I told Nolon he could cut the boards into fire wood. Enough said...he jumped at the chance! :-)
Here is the results:
Today he hauled the board-wood to the woodshed. I should have took pics of that operation also. :-)
His sawhorses were in two parts. ( He built them just for the slab wood.) After he finished this job, he remodeled the 'horses' into one unit. He joking said he would probably have to get the cousin with his tractor loader to move it. :-)
When the weather cools and the ground is wet, I will pull all the stakes from around the beds. If my ambition returns, I think I will move the compost to a location that doesn't require so much mowing around. My 'gardening eyes' were bigger than my abilities...lol.
More pics to follow.
The deer haven't been seen in that 'pasture' since I mowed.
