Put together a cattle panel greenhouse, and working on beds. Still a bit early to pant here in Northern Wisconsin, but want to extend the season some. I was concerned that the structure would be rickety, but turned out be super solid! Actually has been a fun project. View attachment 840199
That's very cool.

Can you elaborate on the raise beds? I like those.
Sure! They came from Northern Tool. I thought they looked atrractive, and the price was reasonable when compared to current lumber prices. I think the 4x6 size was about $65. Different size options, and even a tiered one available.

Moved my sheet metal stash from under the trees to into the back shed this morning. Mostly salvage from the old shop & leftovers from the new one.

Mowed the yard with the X580 and watered the pots this afternoon.

very nice I am doing something similar Rural King has "water troughs" with out the bottoms in them for this purpose. IMO it s a nice clean look. I am thinking of raising mine and using pallets for the floor with my leftover geotextile fabric over that to contain the dirt. No bending over that way, getting old, LOL.

I had my rotator cuff repaired last week so I am home for 6-8 weeks. Today I layed out all my outlets in the shop, mounted the boxes and started running wire to them. I put a box on every other stud, 32"s in-between, to many? never heard anyone say I wish I had less outlets.
I also am wiring them 3 circuits per wall so I am using 3 times the wire but I will never plug 2 tools into the same circuit this way. All 20 amp circuits 3 outlets per circuit. Oh and this is all materials purchased the last several years and are leftovers from rehabs I have done.
Insulation and then my guy will drywall. Yes I like drywall in my shops, painted all pretty. Most of the lower walls will be covered by cabinets or shop equipment so I do not work about holes. Hopefully by the time 6 weeks is up I will be done.
Wife has said do not bother going back to work and re-retire but I am enjoying the job, the commute is only 1 mile round trip and the money sits in the bank for future things.
I am going slow and easy.

We ordered 4 units like Rico's from Northern Tool, $59.99 each plus $103 for shipping plus tax.
I found a $20 coupon online and I paid the $39.99 membership fee for free shipping for a year. Total with tax $280.75

How about a little more info on how you constructed your greenhouse. Like the idea. Thanks

Cleaned up the brush pile:

For use in the garden paths, darker path has older chips:

A future project that I'll have to hire out:

Plant Sky Tree Green Natural landscape


Ash tree that is dying, most likely Emerald Ash Borers. Both trunks are 32" plus in diameter @ 4' off the ground, north (left) one will have to be pieced down, south side can be dropped whole.

Lots of good firewood in it, even 2-3 saw logs if somebody wants them. Squirrels will not be happy!
