Remember that Vince and I move at different speeds and we also think very differently! That’s not always good . . in fact, it’s rarely good. Before I left for Paducah, I had dug out a little trench and put some landscape bricks in for my flower/kitchen garden at the edge of the house. This picture doesn’t show much but this is how it looked when I left for Paducah.
This is how it looked when I got home from Paducah (and a week later, still looks exactly the same).
My landscape bricks have been removed and a mound of dirt dumped! GRRR!
While I was in Paducah, the temporary chicken coop was built.
But, the chickens remain in my basement garage. It’s been raining and the box isn’t waterproof!
And, while I’m in a complaining mood, I had asked for raised beds. I was very specific . . I wanted 6 or 8 beds . . each 4′ x 8′. This is what I found when I returned from Paducah.
OK . . so it’s raised! But it’s not my idea of a raised bed and the dirt was just dumped on top of the weeds . . no weed cloth, no tilling up . . just dumped and spread out.
At this point, I fear there will be no garden this year and I fear I will end up in that wooden box because me and those chickens have just about lived together long enough. It’s going to rain all weekend. Nothing will get done on the chicken coop or the garden. Frustration abounds!
