I decided to work on the net fence that surrounds the garden. The leaves from all the neighbor trees have a tendency to blow into our yard and collect at the base of the net....and if I don' t clean them out they eventually turn into dirt. Since the base of the net is in the gravel driveway this is not a good thing.
I didn't die. And the sun even came out for a few minutes!
This particular job need to be done twice a year. Fortunately, all of the problem trees were cut down this winter, so maybe it won't be a problem anymore? That would be nice....not to mention all the additional sunlight the garden will now be getting now that they're gone. Cutting a tree down makes all the difference!
While I was working on the fence I also repaired some erosion damage in the driveway from the last monsoon.
Here's a funny one on me. I had to quit to run into town to meet some gals for lunch, so I ran inside to take off my raingear and grab a few things to take with me. At the last second I decided I should look in the mirror to make sure I looked half decent.....and burst out laughing....
Note to self: Always look in the mirror before heading into town!
Now THAT'S funny!
