replaced the broken spicket on the large tank and put up the sign on the front gate (with help from Barb, I’m sure). The grass in the Block Watch lots had also been mowed. Rayna had started to remove the fence on the west side of her plot (which is no longer necessary in light of the better J. Jireh fence and would only harbor unreachable weeds). Neal had finished weeding the rest of his plot.
cherry tree. Much like Amy, she likes to be very busy. They went right to work moving our five blueberry bushes from the south side of the Garden (where the greedy raspberries are hogging all of the sunlight) to the north side. This way, we can have our wood chips dumped on the south side next year without having to worry about burying the blueberry bushes. Methodical me had explained how I wanted the blueberry bushes (along with their stone turrets and special soil) moved one at a time, starting with the back one. I’m not just a control freak. I wanted to be sure that we used the correct number of stones for each turret and knew that we could get interrupted by bad weather at any moment. However, they wanted to make the most of their limited time by getting as much work done before they had to leave. Sarah started digging out all of the bushes at once before we even had anywhere to put them. They dug out all of the stones at once, so we ended up with extra when we were finished. Happily, we ended up completing the entire project before the rain came, so all’s well that end well. It was a lot of work and would’ve gone faster if we had another wheelbarrow or two. (As previously mentioned, I had strong doubts that we would even be working this morning, so I hadn’t rounded up any extra barrows for us from Cathy or the Carters).
burritos, a free Gateway movie, Jeni’s ice cream, etc. I had a t-shirt, which went to Neal when Lea refused to take it. We also had Cliff Bars to feed everyone, courtesy of Keep Columbus Beautiful.
