The garden is coming along quite nicely!
After some long hours of work from The Commune crew we have all four of the 4’x30′ beds in!
The trellis bed of 3’x45′ has been somewhat leveled and is ready to have the hand labor started to get it in place.
The truly great thing about my father….well one of the many now that I think about it (love ya dad!)…..is that he has giant piles of what most people call….junk. Everywhere.
And about half the time I am disgusted by it. The other half of the time I find it to be pure genius.
Like when we needed a hospital bed last week…yeah thats right…he had one.
And edging for these raised beds….yeah he has a saw mill. A SAW MILL!?!?! And a whole bunch of logs he milled into perfect beams that sat in the field for years, unloved and unhappy. Now they are loved.
Today I needed trellis netting and deer fencing. And he just so happened to have not one, or two but FOUR rolls of 4′ by 225′ of this hemp roll of root ball netting that just so happens to be perfect for me.
Not that I exactly need 900 feet of it….but beggers can’t be choosers right?! And who knows what other ideas I may come up to use it for.
