0205 hrs local... I usually have something posted @ midnight local, but got run off the computer earlier (I am a bit of a hog in that dept...), and then had work hours change on me. Regardless...
Was given permission to kill some St. Augustine today in the name of garden expansion. I took some video (i hope...) with this new gizmo me mum sent via Mr. Claus a couple weeks back. When I get enough, both video and experience, I'll post some vid and/or photos here; kinda Before/During/After like.
The current garden measures close to 5'x9'; I'm going to keep the width (easy access from either side w/o having to trample/compact soil) and extend the length to ~22'.
22x5 gives 110 ft^2; ought to be able to grow a meal or three there!
[Now, to convince 'em an apiary would benefit... (Helloooo MEAD!)]
Ran down to the seed spot earlier, afraid their sale would end soon, but then a reliable source says it's been 1/2 price for as long as he can remember. (HOO-F%#@ING-RA!!!). Plus, I had more space to fill!ha! Laid a tarp to kill off said grass; just antsy now, as ever, for the weather to warm and the weeding to commence...
May not be exciting reading for many a soul, but man it warms mine. Here I have, for the second time inside a year, a garden right outside my arms-of-Morpheus' chambre, and full reign over said space. And all these new-fangled checks in place-- video, pictures, blogs-- to keep Prometheus' gift alight under my posterior regions; to keep me motivated, as it were.
And A WORLD of fellow travelers to share, learn, and, when needs, LEAN on.
Ain't life Grand, folks? :D
Thanks for stoppin' by...
