An afternoon's efforts
The six beds on the bottom are where the greenhouse will be. That mass of boxes is used to line the paths in the gardens...then, I dump wood chips on top. Today it's just a mess. Oh, and I am atop the chicken coop.
So, this was my task yesterday. I thought about renting a ditch witch, but I knew renting/loading/unloading/using/loading/unloading/unrenting would be about as much caloric energy (and probably more time, frankly) than getting out my big daddy boss hog tiller to bust up the sod and then using my little girly wageslave lackey arms and back to dig the trench.
Frankly, this little trench was beautiful. It was a bit of a shame to have to fill it back in again.
Oh, and I ended up needing more than 100' of pipe. And I hummed chain-gang tunes to myself whilst I worked.
