Finding Jimmy Hoffa…


Today was a really exciting day in the yard. We potted the blueberries with some more strawberries in their pots.

We put rooting powder on our figs and pomegranates, and found some nice dark places for them to sprout.

Then we pruned the peach tree and sprayed it for fungus.

Finally, we pulled up some brick work in the hope of planting the pineapple guava.

This is where things got truly exciting.

We took out the bricks, followed by the “brick dust”.

Then there was a sand and stone layer that was deeper than usual.

After that Pup thought he’d dig the hole which is when he started finding…

Several large chunks of concrete (hence the title of this post).

Ultimately the hole did get dug, however, we were both too tired to plant the tree today, maybe tomorrow.

    That was a very clever title…when you start digging, you never know what you will find!

    Oh gosh, I’m so sorry, Cat! You’ve found quite a lot in your yard. I wish it would stop!

    Hi Janet, from what I understand there used to be a ship builder here a long time ago.

    Naturegirl, glad to see you up and in the mood to type! Just think of all that lush foliage that you get and I miss out on.

    Hey Mom, life is full of surprises!

    Momster, we, or should I say he, got the guava in tonight, but it looks like another run to the stables for me this week.
