Have Shovel, Will Travel
This weekend, Michael and I have our first gig as garden consultants. OK, well... not exactly. But sort of.
We were invited by a friend to go to Atlanta and help fix up a garden for said friend's girlfriend. The existing garden is suffering from drainage problems, and friend claims to have a Steel Thumb.
Apparently we've got some serious Georgia clay to contend with. So our plan is to build raised beds and lay down some soil amendments. I imagine there will be lots of digging, followed by soreness and back pain, but it will all be fun and well worth it. I love that we have the chance to help someone get off to a great start with their garden. Plus, we'll have this opportunity to visit with family members in the area too.
Time with family and friends, and a gardening gig to boot. What a great way to spend the long weekend.
