Dad came over today and built 2 new garden gates. Only had enough hinges to put up one though. I will pick up two more tomorrow.

I got home just before dark after a 12 hour day plus the two hour commute. But I got to see them in the light. They are made of cedar. I love them.

I think I might make the kitchen garden yard out of cedar pickets also. We will see.

PS!! I signed up for a free oranic gardening class on Saturday at 2 and guess what? They have a huge "vat" of compost tea "steeping" and told us to bring a jug as they are going to be giving us a gallon free!

PSS! Dinner was vermicelli alfredo, left over collards and beets

PSSS! Guess what I bought at a nursery by my work? Do you like cooking with bay leaves? I use them all the time plus they keep weevils out of your flour. I bought a Sweet Bay tree!!! And two yellow banana pepper plants and a pablano pepper plant.

A really nice gate that will last for many years. I don't think our area supplies redwood - a shame too. What joy to have a father as yours. You are well blessed. Treaure your gem.

Very nice. I wish I had help like that. I could do so much more. Good for you!


I do treasure him. He hates that he is getting too old to do more out here. He would have really thrived on a place like this.

It really does make a difference to have another pair of willing hands.

The gate is beautiful , your Father did a wonderful job. And yes , it always helps to have an extra set of hands helping. I miss my Dad this time of the year , he was an avid gardener , but he passed 3 years ago.
