Weekend Update - Our New Backyard
The weekend was dominated by relatives. We went to San Francisco on Saturday for our nephew Ethan's Red Egg & Ginger Dinner, and then hosted a barbeque for my cousin Lei-Lei and her kids on Sunday. The best part of the weekend was the first official new backyard outing with Russell and Punky, who enjoyed playing with the Miss Spider sprinkler, jumping down from the rocks on the flower beds and running barefoot on the new grass.
I also finished the second raised (new) Victory Garden bed, which nearly broke my back during its construction. In an ode to recycling, I built it with concrete blocks that came from a dividing wall in the previous version of the backyard. I now have a lot of irregular leftover pieces of concrete and lava rock remaining in the back of the Victory Garden. What should I do with them?
