Just a Little Garden....
Didn't I tell you? Tessie is not a fan of gardening...
So... When I went to do a foundation around the cottage, I did it a little larger than she would have liked. Just to annoy her.
It worked. She left me alone all of the time I was building it. I used a sheet of Luan plywood that was 22" by 24" The house itself is about 17" by 20". There is enough on all sides for plenty of plants....Don't tell Tessie!
Now. About the foundation. I used 1/2" garden stakes from the home center at Lowe's for the sides. It took one and a part of a second to do it.
I had them on hand from last year's gardening, unused. I figured that it would be better to use those than go find another one in the lumber department.
Then I put some glue on the edges and nailed the top to them with small brads through the top edge.
It won't be coming apart in the near future.
As you can see in the second photo....I still have a LOT of rock work to do. Definitely going to need more Model Air.
I have to go all the way across the front of the house and then the side and the opposite corner.
Then it's on to dragons....
Back to work. See you tomorrow.
