Unexpected Gifts for the Garden
As I mentioned in my last post, we ran into septic problems within four days of moving into our cottage. Last Friday, the municipal crew arrived on site and began digging to provide us with a sewer line connection. Our own contractor showed up later that day to begin work on getting pipe from that connection to the house.
I've placed an order for an extra tandem truck load of crushed stone as I like landscaping with this material. I've also ordered some topsoil to help us get the garden started. I want to do some planting this year so the lasange gardening method will be reserved for beds built later this season - more on that later.
