Here is today's Mothers Day harvest, greens & the first 'Easter Egg' radishes of the season. The greens are getting pretty big, last week a pile of greens like this weighted an ounces and this week they weighted two ounces. I have been building the fence all weekend so dinner was not very extravagant but the salad was great.
Here is a photo of what the weekend was spent doing. I managed to complete the parts of the fence I planned on so I am happy about that. I installed the top 2x4 framing and rough graded the ground below the fence. All that is left to do is add the bottom 2x4, install a 2x6 arbor at the end where the gate will be and build the gate. Then in a week or two the fence boards will be ordered and installed.
Between the top 2x4's I will be installing vertical 2x2's to form the appearance of 3 small squares at the top and one large square at the bottom. This will replicate the window design on the house. Once this section is done I will procced with building the fence around the whole yard. One other project for this area is a small deck where the red gravel is currently. It will be used for a small sitting area just outside the back door and a spot to have the grill. Not sure when I will get to that one but it will be some time this season.
Tomorrow I will post about the new raised beds.
