tackling the to-do list...

Be cool. There's actually clear space in the garage.

I freecycled an old carseat, some lumber and drywall scraps, sold two kids bicycle seats and a fireplace screen, and finally hauled the potting bench and four rain barrels (plus the HEAVY concrete blocks to set them on) outside, where they belong. Phew. I made a clear spot.

Today, I also posted a tricycle and a 1970s cruiser bike we don't use anymore on craigslist. fingers crossed those sell!

We spent the weekend digging out the new patio and putting dirt into raised beds. Surprisingly, the excavation-- by hand-- is about 30 percent finished! If we keep poking at it, it'll be done in a couple of weeks and will not have cost us a penny (other than meat and potatoes to fuel us to shovel!).

I need to go dirt shopping this weekend, for compost and other additives to improve the soil we just plopped into the garden, as it's heavy clay and won't be usable as is.

In other news, I admit workwise, I've been slacking. All the years of never-ending back to back deadlines have hit me and now I just can't get motivated to do anything!

    In my town the local horse stables make free manure available to gardeners.
