Shuswap - getting ready for the summer

It is always fun to write a name in the mood and dirt on the deck. Every spot on the decks is just like this. It has been 4-5 years since we have done a forensic clean on the decks. This is the year.  

Today I finished cleaning the upper decks.  Thee was black and green old on the white pickets and everywhere. I took a trip over to Janet and Glen's house this afternoon and took a look at their sparkling white pickets, fence and deck. Janet explained that she spent 3 days cleaning their deck.

 It was cold and raining. While I was busy doing the deck, Greg was working on the back corner of the lot.
Glen suggested it would be easier for us if we grassed in the garden. The strawberry plants were old, did not bear much fruit and the weeds were taller and hid the strawberry plants. So gone are the strawberry plants.
I found two chinese pots from Malaysia so we have filled them with soil and we have planted pumpkin in the pots.
All in a days work at the lake.

  1. There doesn't seem to be any mention of which muscles were aching when you were through with cleaning the deck. Nor is Greg complaining about cleaning the weeds out of the former strawberry garden. I will do that for the work I was doing. Every time I turned over another shovel full of earth, I could find more of those hardly, white, long quack grass roots trailing through earth that I thought was clean of them. There must have been some of those in the earth Greg was turning over.
