Fred made use of boot labor today, so all of us went over to his plot and tended to the trees and growies there.

Grey and I moved some peeled logs and mulched the baby trees. It sounds easy but it entailed pushing wheelbarrows of mulch through brush.

Then later in the day I got to finish my dry stack wall at the greenhouse. It took a few more courses of rock and a bunch of buckets of gravel behind the wall. Josiah, Dez, and Grey all needed gravel and I needed more right away, so I fetched a truck load of gravel at the gravel pile. Then finished off the wall with the last course and dirt behind it.

Josiah had us start boring a hole through the Abby for the greywater pipe going to the greenhouse. We had time to poke through but didn’t have the pipe to test fit. So we switched to mulching on top of the greenhouse to finish the day.


Kind of a mish mash of a day.

Here is the gravel spot, easy to lean a bucket against the pile and rake it in.

I filled up right behind the wall with the gravel for drainage and support.

As we finish the outside of the greenhouse, the outside gets graded and mulched.
