Ok, here's a video of this contraption in action, and please forgive the sometimes muffled commentary by the wind at times. Hopefully you'll get the jest of what i'm talking about.
In other news, i've been doing more cleanup in the garden area - especially around the big box. Weeds grow around the outside perimeter of it like crazy, and a fairly large strip of earth was removed by a shovel, then a liberal layer of cedar mulch laid down. I like for the garden to look neat, especially since there will likely be several new visitors to it this year. If you'd like a tour of it in person, don't hesitate to let me know....
Oh! let me update you on the plum trees....Both are completely in full bloom now, and the blossoms are getting daily visits from bees! Yay!!!! I'll have to do a complete post about the orchard in the near future, because everything in it is awakening from its' winter slumber.
Lastly, i'd like to tell you that there will be a small garden expansion in the next 6-8 weeks. It'll provide me with more level ground for the swc's/swp's to rest on - that's all. I'm just waiting for the landscaping timbers to go on sale, because they're about $4 each right now. The scrap from the upcoming flowerbed for my wife should provide me with the materials needed, so it's just a waiting game right now.
Take care, and happy gardening!
