Now, for more important things. How do YOU transplant your rootbound Iris? We used the bucket of the tractor to lift them, took the time to remove as much of the unwanted weeds and quack grass, and reset them on the east side of the barn. Oh, what a project. I cannot imagine doing this the 'old' way, with fork, back and muscle. Thanks to Bill, this was done in only a few hours instead of weeks.
What once was full of Hollyhocks will now be full of Yellow Flag Iris, Giant Sunflowers and Cosmos of various colors and varieties.
On to another of Bill's projects. Fill 'er up, Big Guy. He loves playing with his toys.
Let 'er fall where it may. The reason the Iris bed had to be moved, was, Bill needed the space to fill in a wider entrance to his second garage stall. Soon it will look all different and tidy again.
There was also wood to make for the winter. This is just an inkling of what has been cut already. Click on the picture to see the 3 tools of the woodman's trade.
While in the neighborhood, of course we had to cool off in the cabin during breaks. It's like walking into A/C. The cabin's logs keep it very cool in the summertime. We have gone from icy cold temps to burning hot but we are not complaining one bit. Bring on the Summer Fun.
Thanks for taking a peek. Come again and
