The rain we got this past Thursday washed the walkway out again. I had ALMOST finished filling it in from the last time it washed out.
It took the truck to work today and got another 9 buckets full of fill. It got pretty close to where it was before. I still need a couple more and then we'll concrete it in next weekend. That should keep it from washing out any more.
I got back from my trip to Allen's in New Hampshire Wednesday night. This was our progress at the end of our work session Wednesday. The sub-floor is assembled, the front and back walls are assembled, and the long walls are each 16 ft long, but need another 8 ft. added to be complete. We couldn't attach anything to the frame because they still haven't issued him a building permit, so we were " pre-assembling" everything we could. Allen has a lot more detail and more pictures on his blog.
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 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.
