Memorial Day weekend is the weekend to get your gardens in in Vermont. Well, northern New England really. So this weekend we took advantage of the awesome weather and got to work. This year we dug up two raised beds to make room for a garden shed that's been sitting un assembled for...well...way too long, removed an overgrown tansy patch and built two new beds in its place (well, one and a half so far, we couldn't build it and get it in completely until the tractor work was done). We also expanded our hillside "in ground" bed and plan on tilling up a square for root veggies like beets, carrots and rutabagas. Yesterday Mike's brother came down and moved a bunch of dirt for us, leveled out the area that the shed is going to go, moved our ginormous pool for us so it was out of the way and helped to cut down a couple of dead trees (Thank you Eric! :-) ). Its all starting to come together.
After dragging a bunch of brush through the woods to brush piles, I saw this:
What is that? looks like a smooth stone of some sort..wait..what is that on it..?
Oh for the love of Pete! WHO is Butch???? I think I'll clean out around it and maybe plant some little flowers. Someone must have really loved their dog (Oh god please let it be a dog...) to have a stone engraved for him.
