The new apricot tree has sprouted leaves!
We picked up more urbanite from Gabe’s house.
There is now room for the 7 and 8 inch thick pieces of urbanite that will form the head of the snake path.
dirt from the path has been used to build up the vegetable garden space, especially where water from the roof had eroded it.
Bermuda grass was removed.
19 inch tall logs are on the patio for us to sit on.
conversations were had.
You can be a part of this. Join us for fun, camaraderie, exercise and learning (gardening and non-gardening activities available!)
