We had an amazingly busy weekend and after getting home with the baby chicks Friday evening, we never left the house all weekend. That, my friends, is my idea of the perfect weekend!
Our biggest project was getting the keyhole garden started. We didn’t get any of them finished but Vince got two started.
On the advice of a friend who’s an expert keyhole builder, Vince put a piece of rebar through a connector “thing” attached to a 3′ piece of PVC pipe and ran it around in a circle, spraying painting the outline.
He ended up running his little cultivator around the outline so he can get it perfectly level. Sometimes the “engineer” in his head makes me crazy. Just build it and stop making everything so perfect. I want to plant NOW! 🙂
The more he works, the more “engineer” thoughts run through his head. Since we’re using pallets for the sides, he decided to paint the side of the pallets that will be next to the dirt.
He ended up painting 12 pallets and 5 “tops”. The tops will be used for the “pie” section of the garden.
It’s a start. Hopefully we’ll have some time in the evenings this week to get started building. I’m excited about this and Vince seems to be enjoying it too.
