I didn't realize we could add pics as attachments.

Raised veggie beds, hugelkultur flower bed, tree that is the best feature and biggest headache of the property. Screens on the new bed are to keep the squirrels from eating all my seeds.

Great job! A delightful color explosion!

I can recommend folks click on the pic to see it upright. At first I was confused because it looked like an unusual window slider on the side of a house, not door. Being an occasional dufus, I stared at it trying to work it out then wanted to see it larger. Bingo! Right side up!

Well-done @diabetes86 !

I wish I had some part of my house or garden with your colors. It looks great!

I'm not exactly stuck at home, but I am working part-time and I had a long weekend. Our neighbor is moving and we're sharing a dumpster with them. I spent yesterday working on filling the dumpster--everything from a broken dog igloo to old, no longer needed items in our garage.
We moved in this house in 1977 and I often joke that we should pretend to move to get rid of things. We kind of did that yesterday.
We have items from both of our families that they stored with us "because you have a garage" Now we have a garage without room for a car! Only two of the relatives with items in there are still alive and they refuse to let go.
We filled our recycle bins, gave our other neighbor some items, and made two trips to Goodwill as well. Tired and sore this morning, but feeling good about the progress!

The garden has had its ups and downs this year, but now I have a lot of
home grown tomatoes.


This forum doesn't seem to like youtube links, so if you want to hear the song you will have to go there and find it.

I love the song, the tomatoes, and all things Guy Clark!
