The next morning I caught a few shots of why we need so much fencing.

You've got a lot of cool projects there.
This was kind of my story too. I was a total mouse potato, and way over weight, until I started skating again.

I couldn’t jog or run, and I could barely walk without pain.

But I found I could push a skateboard around and I did that until I was 70 pounds lighter.

I built over two dozen custom skateboards in the process

Here's what might happen if you dropped off an old lawn mower to be fixed,
and left it here too long.View attachment 199652
How long is too long? I'll drop a couple off...
I like it!

Cathie gets her garden.
Very late this year. . . . View attachment 199494
Good Lord! I can’t show this to my wife.

So far she’s happy that I’m just bringing her bags of potting soil in my pick up truck. She doesn’t do any veggies.

She was a country girl but she moved to the city and went to the University and became a city girl. A flower Gardener.

Here’s her bicycle related gardening.

I have more, but that’s enough for now.

I’m at the point where I am hiring guys to come and mow my lawn and prune my trees and polish my car and motorcycle.

So I can weld frankenbikes . . . LOL

After this gets all clean I will be able to pull the clutch apart and repair it. And at that point my vow (to avoid major welding projects until the motorcycle was fixed) will be satisfied.

I should have it all back together tomorrow night.

So this is just one step closer to A Lengthy Insanity.

I do love the bicycle gardening, i will show that to my wife, also a flower gardener.
As well as vegies. She's out there right now, transplanting the "starts" from the pots.
There are already some tomatoes on the vines.
She knows all the Latin names for plants, flowers, trees, and such. I know then as green, yellow, red,
or blue.

In fact, part of her "dream" for this property is to start a flower farm.
Grow 'em right over the leach field.
Sell 'em, give 'em away, and provide some for hurting folks when in need of a boost.

That's also what she picked out as a name for this place. "Windy Willows Flower Farm"

Guess who gets to make the sign, build an put up the gateway and overhead, and then
mount the sign.

<voice=Agent 86>Tiny little elves?</voice>

I have similar projects that I am putting off.
Maybe I can hire them out.
And get my wife to pay.

I gotta figure out how to arrange that.
