Reunited And It Feels So Good


Ok, it’s my first day of really gardening in my new house. We’ve finally found everything from the move except my KitchenAid and fresh sheets- and heck, I’m not going to let that keep me from being outside in this glorious weather trying to make sense out of my new space.
First order of business? The Canine Residue Accommodation Pollution Preventing Earth Receptacle, to be referenced to henceforth as CRAPPER. I dug a hole, put a big nursery pot in the hole and sliced up the bottom a little. I made sure it was secure and I put a slab of stone over it. Now, in this case- the stone is marble. Yeah, I have a marble dog sh***er in my yard. Now that’s what I call fancy!

Next task? Pulling up a ton of landscape fabric. Ew. If someone were to ask me how I felt about landscape fabric, I’d have to sit down so the blood didn’t all rush to my eyeballs while I ranted. I don’t like it, I don’t think it does what it’s supposed to do and I think it makes a whole heap o’ problems you never see coming- like landslides, avalanches and earthquakes. Yeah, I bet you didn’t know  landscape fabric cause all those, did you?

Next on my plate is somehow finding some hunks of muscle to drag this awesome old school freezer from the basement to behind the garage where I will use it as a potting bench. It has great storage, can be hosed down and no one else on my block will have one. Before you ask, we are getting a lock on it so kids don’t go in there (like there will be space, HA!).

That is just a random selection of AmandaCrap™ in and around it just now. I’ll accept a list of things you see in this photo in The Forum. I’ll start you out…
