It was just as the title says; a sawdust therapy kinda day. Which is OK since I like the smell of sawn lumber and there was plenty of that today. I had lotsa western red cedar sawdust to sweep up and throw into the trash. But that’s alright too. The garage floor needed a good sweeping anyway. But at the end of the day I have two new raised garden beds cut out with one having two coats of Thompson’s Water Seal applied to it. Now all I hafta do it get the other bed sealed tomorrow and I should be good to go to get them assembled Wednesday after work and sited.
I did run into a fairly real problem with where I wanted to locate one bed. The desired location is right over a junction box for part of my yard irrigation system. Ugh! The best laid plans of mice and men go quickly astray. No worries. I have another site picked out and now maybe I’ll add another bed later in the year. They will look get from that angle and maybe I can put down some flagstone or something in between them so I can locate my bird bath there. What’s really cool is I found a solar powered light that will look awesome when I put it dead center of each bed.
My yard guys are gonna hate me however. Screw em. I pay the invoice each month and not them. I don’t think they get a vote.
