New Garden Bed

Just what I didn't need in the heat of July was a new bed, but circumstances of the old vine covered stump just made it so.

Three big stones were plucked by machine from other beds. I'll be moving smaller stones with hand trucks.

Moving Crape myrtles will have to wait for first frost. Some scattered seeds can hold the place and the thought until permanent plants are chosen. More soil has to be hauled in. The dark stuff is well composted gin trash.


  1. Will be fun to watch the progress on the new bed ... :)

  2. Way to go Nell, even if it is in July. Do take it easy and don't work too hard. That summer heat and humidity drain us very quickly. Be sure to drink plenty of water to rehydrate. Of course, you probably already know that. ;-)

    Looking forward to seeing the progress of your new bed.


  3. Oh I wish I had those rocks! :)

  4. Looking at all that "naked" dirt gets me very excited!


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
