For the past … oh … year or so, I’ve been working on a garden upgrade project. The entire thing has been chronicled on Grit Magazine’s web site starting with Part 1 (then click the [NEWER] links at the bottom of each episode to step through the entire series). Feel free to click that link to go read all about it, if you have any interest at all. Make sure you have a beverage handy. And a sandwich. The six parts posted so far can take a while to read through, but they’re chock full of tips and advice on doing this.
Today, Julian the Boxer and I completed this project.
I have to build a fancy-schmancy wooden gate to replace the temporary (fence panel) gate currently in use. But other than that, it’s all done. And I’m glad.
To celebrate, the puppers and I had a rare treat: a fried bologna and tomato sandwich — YUM!
Okay – *I* had a fried bologna and tomato sandwich, they divvied up a slice of “raw” bologna. I didn’t hear any complaints about it not being fried.
Now that the wall and fence are complete, I will be able to keep those crawliflowers, rowdybeggas, brawlocci, tornups, sneak peas, swift corn, booger beans, and snapping peas inside the garden. The beats will probably continue to make noise to cover the escape attempts of the others for a while, but I imagine in time it will all settle down and become like the garden of weedin.
