Built a hill + sitting place that will be under a tree and have the exact right view of the fire pit + beyond. 2/4 big piles of dirt done! Moved some YB cuttings outside.

song in my head: Polar Opposites- Modest Mouse


Moved some dirt from the big pile in the north-east corner to the east fence edge. Dug up a ton of weeds. Read TWoB and realized I was not using the patterns *Garden Seat* and *Sunny Place* to maximum effect, so I replanned to create those patterns more fully. Also I had a half-assed *Entrance Transition* and no *Trellised Walk*, so I sketched the latter to solve the former. Got very excited making a more detailed sketch and deciding where to put the hill for the *Raised Flowers* (wraps around the *Garden Bench*).

Dug a bunch of weeds from the south east corner perched upon a cardboard situpon.

Back hurty. Bought some yerba buenas and a shelf for them! The first plant for the garden!


Back hurty :/


Dug weeds from southeast corner.


not sure.. prob weed digging? hbd chris


Moved extraneous dirt, dug weeds, built the fire pit. Think this is when I knacked my back.


Tamped all the gravel and removed all remnants of the old overgrown shrubs save one stump that was too heavy to throw over the fence.


Split open all of the bags of gravel. ANd poured them into the pit.


I did not labor I guess.. prob to sore from schlepping.


The random shrubs are all gone. The gravel came and me n juhi moved all 2 yds^3 of it from the front to the back. Quite knackered.


Finished digging out that second shrub in the back I think.


Re-filled even more of the hole. Tamped and evened the hole bottom.


Re-filled hole more. Purchased a tamper. Rain!


Re-filled hole some.


Re-filled hole, cleaned up edges and jon dug around near the base of big shrub #2.
on the speaker: beats by jon


I think I probably was messing about with the lines and levels around the pit. Or digging around shrubs.


Dug out the old fencepost protruding from the bottom of the hole. Dug around shrub #2 quite a bit.


hbd juhi. uhhhh idk we'll figure out the rest of this later
