I was planning to finish the plant's bedding and fix my flag pole...but... that did not happened, nor did much work got done on fix a chair in the month of June...
Oh well, life gets in the way. And life is too precious and short lived, to worry about small things like that.
I feel fortunate to live here, in Canada, I cherish my liberty and freedom.
I gave most of my adult life protecting this hard earned way of life.
We are not a perfect society by any stretch of the imagination but, we like to think of ourselves as polite and well mannered...(except on ice during a game of Hockey) :-)
So I had to compromise and put up another flag mount, this time on the side of the house, with a few days to spare before today... :-)
View from our little cozy bistro corner
Meanwhile, I started digging the flower beds up front. Widened the existing one and made a new half moon, behind.
I was pleasantly surprised at the depth and quality of the top soil
I did not thought I had much top soil on it, but everywhere I dig, I find good, deep soil. Mind you, that big expense of grass get beaten down by the sun all day. Whenever I finished landscaping, building a new driveway to the back, moving and adding some trees, I would have to install some sort of irrigation system. We had such a system in Ottawa, but it was a postage stamp piece of land... Works great but you have to disassemble some components and blow air through it to clear all water for winterizing. Will see what is available by the time I get to it...
This is what it used to look like in 2013
before a wind storm broke my flag pole (rusted at the bottom)
Done, next prepare soil and plant bedding material.
My new flag pole would go approximately at the same place
My small Rototiller, currently in the shop
and her John Deere workhorse
Miraculously, no other parts have been broken or lost, but more joinery came loose. It is looking more and more like a complete tear down and re-glue job.
So while technically while we are still in June (June 31st :-) I should be able to finish it still in June.
Meanwhile, Rudy made a lot more progress on his chair...
Ok, I will just lay here and be a good boy
What happened to the chair throws? I have no idea,
but I think we know who is the boss of them
That was exhausting work, but I'll be done in June Dad
Got one almost completely moved
Bringing it down to the floor
Then taken to his people's couch
For some reasons he likes to bunch them up in a ball...
They also seems to be haunted, they have been spotted moving around
the living room by themselves.
2 kinds of radishes; Champion, Scarlet globe.
4 kinds of salads,
Iceberg, Romaine, Swiss Chards, Red leaf lettuce.
Its a tough job, but some one got to do it.
Bob, the gentleman farmer, short on time but with plenty of projects :-)
