thank you...it has been lots of fun... I will show you the flower garden (at the beginning stages for perennials) on the side of the house. I want to plant a dwarf pear or apple like the french wire but that will have to wait until spring.
still have tons of weeds with being sick on and off this summer has made it difficult to keep up with it physically.

We are beginning our winter vegetable garden here. We have done a lot of talking and figuring (and arguing) and planning.

Tonight we put up the wood borders, making it about 12' x 12' (can I take care of all this??). It was some old redwood scrap boards we had, worn out wood and not good for anything else. We screwed them together in square shape, DH had to level the ground so they laid level and square.

We are going to have a raised dirt bed with plastic underneath (better to keep control of nematodes) and all the vegetables we love to grow.

blessed, your flower garden picture is beautiful. How many eggs are you getting a day now, Harriet?
