John sure has been busy. He's even worked through rain.
~Making the Mad Dash through Torrential Downpours~
The measurements are 8 ft by 3 ft and it is 2 ft deep. I will fill it with a 60% screened topsoil and a 40% compost, which will all be mixed in together.
The results sure are pleasing. Next time you see this, perhaps it'll be filled with lush plantings. Currently, John's considering using it as a poodle pound. Poor Molly!
Diane had this suggestion for me: Hope you gave hubby a Yankee dime for all that hard work!
Now John and I had no idea what a "Yankee dime" was never having heard the term. We did come up with an interesting theory. John suggested that it is a post Civil War term meaning that a Confederate dime wouldn't be worth much. Not so. According to Diane, a "Yankee dime" is a peck on the cheek.
Well, that's pretty cheap pay. In addition to a peck on the cheek, I made John a strawberry-rhubarb pie. It didn't come out of the oven until after ten p.m. and John waited up for it. Now that's saying something!
It wasn't pretty, but it tasted great.
