The question we've been asked the most this spring/summer. What are you doing with all of those paving stones on the sidewalk by your house?
You can see from the photos that this project started months ago in the spring. There aren't any leaves on the trees yet.
This is when it comes in nice and handy having so many big boys around the house. Well, that is if and when you can get them to all be home at the same time.
Watching the paving stones being unloaded was quite exciting can't you tell? That and I love teasing The Native's that I am taking photos of their cute bums. The SM's included......
Sorry. What were we talking about?
More proof this was months ago. If I were a good blogger I would have up to date play by play photos of the project but we all know that isn't the case and much like my personality, my blog is spastic.
Last year The SM and my Dad helped me build these square foot garden boxes where they have spent a year sitting empty at the south end of our yard. We built them such that our gypsy wagon hen house could sit on top of them, thus taking care of fertilizing my gardens for me!
Remember....... I'm lazy........ if I can skip a step or make it more efficient I am all over it!
I really do need to waddle myself out to the gardens and take a photo of them now. The arbor there in the background is covered in bright red roses, more of the gardens have paving stones around them and are filled with veggies, the blackberries to the right are covered in blossoms which The SM's bees are loving.
This is what The SM and some of The Native's have been hard at work at. Making my veggie patch look more beautifulishness! I just made that word up...... You didn't know that wasn't a real word did you? It's okay. That's why I'm here. To point out what is real and what isn't.
Real: There are several more veggie beds paved in now. The one here on the right is full of potatoes and onions, the one next to it, has cucumbers, and The Girl's Gypsy Wagon is further down the yard on the last veggie garden getting fabulously fertilized and not much else because my poor Girl's are going under a really bad hair/feather treatment/process right now called molting. It's hideous really. They look like a cat got a hold of them, some worse than others. I know! I should take photos and blog about it!!!
