Ugly Garden Gets a Makeover
Just in time for Fall, Ugly Garden got a little spruced up.
You may remember the fencing for ugly garden was repurposed from our very friendly neighbor. Since it had been sitting along side his house for who knows long, it was in need of a little paint. This has been on my agenda for, oh, just about the entire summer. I finally managed to get it done before the rains started in earnest.
You will notice that the Hoop House is rocking its cover now-a-days as well. Fall crops seem very happy with this arrangement thus far.
My little metal bin that never seems to want to grow much of anything has finally found a willing resident; Miners Lettuce! I’m tickled with this arrangement since I *lurve* egg salad with a Miner’s Lettuce accompaniment.
My rain barrel search is off to a fruitful beginning. I scored one for $30 last week (they are typically $80). It needed a few minors modifications (spigot and hole in the top), which The Husband tackled with ease. You will note its not quite operational yet, since we are lacking gutter pieces. Hopefully, those are coming home with The Husband today.
This will hopefully be the first of 3 rain barrel I’d like to put into duty before next years growing season. Since the first one was so easy to find, I have high hopes for accomplishing this without paying anywhere near full price.
Last, but certainly not least, one pug-dog. None too happy about the addition of rain and wet to his morning potty routine.
