It's been a busy summer. I've been doing my best to get out into the yard and re-vamp it. Right now my biggest battle is the weeds in the lawn which seem to live through every form of weed killer I have applied. The fence was finished about three weeks ago. It wasn't my dream fence but with the impending new roof happening in a few weeks, money was scarce. I am happy with the end result of the fence though. I had two new gates installed and kept the lines of the fence as plain as possible.
In the spring I headed to the back forty where my large pine/spruce trees are and made a meandering pathway from the back shed to the compost box. I have to say it has a magical quality to it. I'll post pictures of that soon.
I am hoping to build some planter boxes for my vegetable garden this fall so the garden will look better next year and it will be easier to plant and keep weeded.
