Property: Micro-Farm

When the bobcat was out to even out the parking area for the relocated driveway, it also rough-cut the bottom tier for the garden beds. The other two tiers will have to be cut by hand for the individual beds. It's the only way I can think of to prevent erosion without massive expense for an expansive retaining wall and stairs. We'll see how it works out, and how long it takes me to accomplish *any* of it. Maybe the building of beds can happen when Grandma is visiting so we can work on prepping them for fall crops.

Property: Driveway Relocation, Act 2

A second load of gravel arrived last week.

Before we could order it the scrub from the trees that were felled had to be dealt with. The clothesline had to be taken down--which ended up being easy since the poles had unknowingly rusted right where they emerged from the cement blobs. The bobcat had to come out again to even out the side lot.

We need a third load to get a good base for the parking area, but the second load is keeping the vehicles out of the mud for the time being, and we can park at the house rather than on the drive.
