Heather and I took the boat up to Cave Run Lake this morning. It was WAY busier than I thought it would be, with a lot of out of state boats out on the lake.
We had warm and windy conditions today, with the water warmer than I had figured at 72. I was thinking upper 60's. It was still a nice day to be out. Willow went with us, too.
Here we have a spot for a "roadrunner tunnel" with a couple of channel marker bouys that broke loose and drifted over to the the rock face that makes up the shoreline in that spot. I wonder if it would work...
I added a piece of landscape fabric over the drain holes in the bottom of the barrel, then Heather and I started filling it. We had plenty of "compost" laying around.
We filled up to about 3" from the top of the barrel and topped it off with bagged topsoil. All four are full and planted with spinach, two kinds of lettuce, and three kinds of onions & scallions. Now we wait and see how they do.
I cleaned up the mower deck this morning. The buildup underneath was not bad, especially since I never cleaned the deck out last year.
It looks good with the fresh coat of paint and the new blades. That also helps to keep the grass from sticking under the deck.
I charged the battery, changed the oil and filter, and cleaned the air filter and aired up the tires. One of the back tires was a bit low.
I also sprayed a couple cans of red paint into the bed of the truck. All the shoveling this week had scraped a lot of the paint off the bed and I don't want it to rust out. It really is red, even though it looks kind of orange.
I got another load of topsoil yesterday and spread it in between the waves of rain that weren't supposed to be falling. I didn't get any pictures yesterday because of that. This load was a little bigger and made it all the way to the cedar tree in the picture. Mowing the yard will be easier now.
I was born in the northwest, but grew up in Florida. I made the Adirondack Mountains of New York my home back in the early 80's where my kids were born and grew up. I relocated to Kentucky in the fall of '09.
