Yard Work and Covid-19

Staying home, social distancing and wearing mask is our new norm but you can work in the yard without worrying about any of the above.

Every nice day David and I are out in the yard doing something. I got the front flower beds taken care of. We even got some flowers because there is this tent in the parking lot near us that is selling plants. I was told they come down every spring from Lancaster.

I got the edging delivered from Aldi’s. I know it isn’t straight but it works.

I saw on the news that Milk & Honey Farm was giving away seeds so people could start a victory garden. David and I made a run out to the farm on the other side of Harrisburg.

Milk & Honey Farms is a non-profit, veteran owned, 5 acre farm dedicated to providing fresh fruit, vegetables, honey, and eggs for those at risk for hunger in South Central Pennsylvania. We provide seasonal garden plots for volunteers from the community to help plant, grow, and harvest crops for local food banks, churches, and veterans organizations to distribute to those in need. For 2019, we will be donating to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and their Military Share program for veterans and military families. We will also be supporting a few small local church food banks.

David,s wrist and knee from his fal a few weeks ago were starting to feel better, so on another nice day he got the yard mowed.

I got a rib eye roast smoking.

I then worked on the flower bed in the back around the tree.

David caught me carving on the deck,

as I watched our squirrels and baby rabbit in the yard.

It was then time to bring in the smoked meat.

My oldest son, Jared, is here to get my upstairs wired, plumbed and the floor level before he heads back home to Alaska.

Jared just put in our bathroom vent

David got the grass removed from the space where we are putting our small garden. I took the pieces of sod and placed them in bare places in the yard. I am going to start on putting the blocks around the garden when it stops raining again. Of course, our next problem is getting some top soil with everything closed. We will figure it out.

What have ya’ll been up to? Let me know.

Stay safe out there!

Thanks for stopping bye!
