I think we might be finished with the yard. 110 tons of dirt, 2 tons of rock, and more grass seed than I ever hope to see again and maybe (fingers crossed) I think we are done.
We contemplated a french drain at the bottom of a hill which drains a lot of water onto the property, but decided on a dry creek bed instead. It's not the best looking one on the planet, mostly because its fairly straight. We brought in large rocks scattered randomly along the sides, mid size rocks for the bulk and small ones for the center where the creek water runs when it rains.
I can't wait to plant some creek type plants beside it, in it. I don't know if I'll get to it this year tho..I'm getting pretty sick of the yard. I still have to order and place mulch in all my flower beds. That's at least 8 cubic yards all moved with a shovel and my back.
I really like black mulch. But it gets very hot in the summer. Lots of steam when we get rain at the end of a sunny day. Looks like steaming piles of poop. haha.
And now I am seeing big fat black ants crashing the garden party. Where are they coming from and what do they want?
I'm a veteran at kicking garden pest butt. So, if they are smart, they'll move along. Nothing to see here folks. Nothin to see here.....
Gavin is out for the summer and Tuesday is Hunter's last day. It's nice to get up and go when we want too. Gavin has a new Spiderman bike so he's more than ready to ride.
We are looking forward to camping this summer. We bought a nice pop up last year. We are fortunate there are so many nice places to camp in Ohio. I particularly like the camping sites which have different activities from horse back riding, fishing, hiking, canoeing. Oh and wifi...sad to say but I don't consider it a proper campsite without wifi. Doesn't mean I will ever break out my lap top, but I want the option.
Some people camp to listen to the silence. But we can do that in our back yard for the most part so why pay between $30-$45 a night somewhere else?
My garbage disposal is broken. Actually it's smoking. Is that normal? Can I pretend it is so we can ignore it? hahaha
I think I'll pull a Scarlett O'Hara and think about it another day. Think about everything another day...
