Garden Party

Landfill: check.

Metric buttload of topsoil, mulch and pinestraw: check. I couldn't believe the truck was actually driveable with that much stuff in it. Go truck!

I raked/scraped the leaves, sticks and general crap out my brick planter/bed in the backyard, weeded and fertilized it, and put down 360 lbs. of new topsoil (1/3 of the topsoil I bought). Tomorrow I will plant some flowers and mulch that sucker. The little cast iron edgers I got to put around the bed are cool. They have a kind of Charlestonian shell design to them. Now that I've decided on the configuration I like, I need to see if I can find two more.

I also pruned the camellia and fig tree. Looks good.

Yay!!!
Good work.
I'm still waiting for you to come over and work on my yard. :)

Hmm. I have many more hours of work to put in on my own yard before I can start making West Coast house calls. But the idea of heading to Seattle--even if it is to do yardwork--is still appealing!

Come on! And I'll take the yardwork off the table.
