Ha, ha, Blogger! I just post at WordPress, then cutting-n-pasting works here without getting that nasty "form errors" message. Cross-posting, I guess you call it. Anyway, my other blog at WordPress is Here.
It's hard to get the whole wall in one shot. Click to embiggen. The sack-n-patch is done. Now I just have to wire-brush the rusting steel strips, paint, and backfill. The pile of scrap lumber (hidden by the tree) is spoken for. A friend of mine will use it next winter in his wood-burning stove.
I'm planning on putting colored gravel in the center section. I'm not really looking for any more yardwork, like ground-cover plants, bushes, or more trees. But before that gets done, I need to run some conduit to the Astro-Table and run some water lines, valves, and a timer, to automate the irrigation of the trees.
