four fruit trees!!!
a friend from college, jimmy, has been staying with me the last few weeks and wanted to do something nice....so, i told him i was thinking about getting some trees, fruit trees. we went to Oakland Nursery tonite and got two peach trees and two apple trees, and came back to plant them. they're already in the ground, and i think in a few weeks i should be able to start making jelly and baking pies. ha ha!

the concrete project
here's three photos.....one taken when i first moved in, of the back "yard"...when there still was a yard. ha ha! anyway, you can see the concrete parking pad that was formerly behind my house. the other photo is a work-in-progress of me tearing out the concrete [with a mattock], and the other is after i have put topsoil down on it. tonite i will amend the soil with some sand and peat, and tomorrow i will plant the corn. yay!
