Another Project

Hello everyone! Another beautiful day here in Floyd. I decided to work on an outside project since it is so nice.

I decided to make another raised bed. I like these smaller sizes. I think this one will be for kale or something similar.

I think it looks good. I like making these little projects. Keeps me looking forward to spring!

God bless.

A Completed Project and a Memory

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great week so far. We had really nice weather today so I decided to finish up the a-frame trellis.

I really like how it turned out. I want to build a raised bed to put the trellis in. That will give me a little more growing space. I haven’t decided yet if I want to make it a wood raised bed or if I want to use cinderblocks. I have a while to decide before spring comes.

I also wanted to share a memory. You see the roll of twine in the picture. Well, about 30 years ago, my mom and my uncle bought themselves these rolls of twine. When they got them, they were huge! My uncle said to my Mom “Rosie, I think this twine will last us our lifetime!” Well it did and it is still being used. I use it every summer in the garden. When I first started working on the trellis, I thought I would just put cattle fencing on it but then I thought it would be fun to use Mom’s twine. She would have loved this project and it made me feel close to her to use the twine.

God bless!

Seed tools

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are having a great weekend.

Things are good here. I went over to Jess and Dave’s yesterday to help him put in a new stovetop. Their old one had cracked and they had ordered a new one. Turned out the new one did not fit correctly so we had to put the old one back on temporarily until they get a replacement.

While I was there, I picked up the seed tool set Dave had printed for me. I had shown him a picture of these earlier in the week and ask if he thought he could print me a set. These are exactly like the ones I wanted. I love them!

God bless!
