Gosh, I sure love my garden. It gives me so much comfort. The year has been so very difficult for me in many ways and I am so grateful for the pleasure my garden gives me
Yesterday I was able to buy some more planting mix, garden soil and peat moss so I can work in some more flower beds that need some invigorating. The clay and rocky soil is so difficult to work with. For optimum results the garden needs a lot more amendments.
All the rains this past year have certainly given a pleasant dimension to the garden this year. Everything is looking healthier and more abundant. So nice!
😟 Lately, it seems like each day I am faced with a new challenge. Today was no different. About mid-day I heard what sounded like water running forcefully. I quickly went outside to the main water valve on the side of the house to find lots of water gushing from a PVC water pipe valve next to the main valve. It is the valve pictured at the bottom of the next photo where you can see the red lever. It was installed years ago for the sprinkler system.
I'm tired and going to bed!
