Garden Move Complete Almost

Here's the new garden look:

Moved 3 of the planters from the hill. One on the left has red onions in it already. Bought them last Summer and had to get them in the ground asap. One on the right is destined for 2 tomato plants. Middle one with have......something.

These are the pavers for the walkway. Little darlings weigh about 25 lbs. each.

First ya gotta put down some sand for leveling. 

That's after you pile 73 pavers all over the place. Spread them out so you don't have to lug them very far to put them down. 

From the patio to the turn toward the gate. 2 1/2 pavers wide. Wide enough for the Gorilla Cart to pass thru and also the green recycle bin.  

The second section to the gate. Notice the pile of pavers in the middle box are gone. 

Small shortage at the gate aligning with the pavers from the street to the gate. Wasn't going to pay $60 or $70 bucks for a saw blade to cut 3 pavers to fit in the space. Filled it with gravel I took from the front yard when we put bark out there. 

Last one to move was the triangle. Now there is lots of space around it so there shouldn't be an tripping or falling as has occurred in the past. This planter usually gets the cucumbers. They can crawl up the fencing at the back of the triangle. Last year we had Lemon Cucumbers. One plant produced more than 50 cucumbers. This year probably a different type. 

All that left to do is plant and connect the sprinkler lines based on what is where. 

Since it seems to have stopped raining in Nor Cal, I might even get a day of fishing in. Wow, what a concept. 

Stay tuned.


  1. I'm impressed; no gym work for you. There is no need to mow the grass. I planted 80 onion bulbs a couple of weeks ago, and they are three to 4 inches tall now. My first experience with a raised garden, and I can see I will like it!!

    1. Hi Bill. Makes it easier for us old guys when you have to attend to it.
