This is how the 99% works!
My project this morning: I waited a while before tackling this project. This was the first little area I put in the yard here... many moons ago. It was buried under dirt and leaves and there was at least a half a inch of green on the picnic table. It sits under the old Oak Tree.
A friend got these lounge chairs for me at least 20 years ago. He got them at Walmart for 10 bucks a piece. It was the end of the summer. They cleaned up pretty well.
These umbrellas have seen better days..but they'll still keep the sun off ya. One was bent up last year by the wind when roomy didn't put it up. I couldn't get it to stand up straight because the metal at the bottom was bent. Well I got out my trusty recipicating saw and cut off some of the bottom. I had bought a new all purpose blade. That worked. I also spray painted the white base to the other umbrella with some Rustoleum paint. Good for another year.
Those are a few of my potted veggies..the ones I moved here yesterday. I hope they like their new home.
This was an herb garden I put in many years ago. I used one of those little forms that you pour cement in to make a designed area. I made the mistake of planting some garlic chives. Never do this. I unburied this area also this morning. Now I have to try to get rid of those garlic chives.
This is how you will look after doing all of the above.
