That Went Well

Nine of us - including five neighbors I had not met before today - turned Gardens today. The turning itself took less time than it took to explain the process…

When we finished we enjoyed a good lunch - pulled pork sandwiches, coleslaw, baked beans, chips and pop with bear claws for dessert - and fun conversations about farming, weather, where we all went to school and other get-to-know each other topics. Beer was available but these guys were going back to the fields after lunch so no one had a beer (I did later in the afternoon). When the guys left, they said to let them know when I need to turn the boat again or load it on a trailer.

Gardens now rests on blocks just above floor level. It will be very easy to get in and out of the boat to work on the interior.

It was a good day.


  1. Congratulations on this milestone, Bob! Many hands make light work.

  2. Well done, envy you the manpower on hand. Glad it went without incident. You will have lots to think about over winter.

  3. Thanks! Many hands really does make light work. It was very satisfying to see the boat turned over.

    I'll have plenty to think about over the winter - but I hope to get a bit more work done before conditions make any work impossible.

  4. She is doing her work already: filling the vessel of life.
