Getting started...

I got started on several larger projects over the past four days or so, and none of them is finished enough to really give you a good look at them.

So today just a couple of peeks at what's going on.


The biggest project effort-wise has been the new fence around the veggie beds. All you can see of the new fence in the photo above are the support posts -- the only straight, vertical things in the image. (Any leaning of the tall wooden poles is due to lens distortion)

Digging the post holes took a lot out of me since our clay soil is so dry right now, but I broke the nine holes up over a couple of days to make it possible. Even though they're just supports I felt confident enough to plant my kale:

Confident but not stupid, I placed some fencing over the plants in case the deer were curious. I don't know if a woodchuck (groundhog) is still hanging around my yard but there's an entrance to a den underneath my stick pile (next to my compost pile) that could easily be for a woodchuck. I saw something run yesterday but didn't get a good look at it.

I got at least a dozen non-edible things into the ground yesterday, but many of the remaining plants will be going outside the new fence once it's completed. So I decided to move everything here into this bed which will be unused until next season:

Whatever doesn't make it into the ground will just be planted here, heeled in, awaiting planting in the spring.

I've also been doing more work with the "cube" stools, experimenting a bit, perfecting my technique:

Not quite there yet, but having fun with it.

More on this soon...

All questions about the "cubes" will soon be answered. :)

Crazy cool cubes & colors! Lens distortion, that's what I'll blame for all of my crooked pots! You are one busy and creative man!

Your porch looks like a great place to sit and watch the coming of fall...Love your funky cubes.
