Garden Prep Gone Awry?

No, we didn't go overboard getting the soil tilled for the upcoming growing season. We're getting a shinynew sewer line! It wasn't on the original agenda for this spring, but the raw sewage that flooded our basement a couple weeks ago prompted us to rearrange our priorities. For over a week now, our backyard has looked more like Beirut than Boise. Fortunately, we have plenty of playspace available right across the street at the schoolyard, so Violet isn't missing anything. And Atticus is hardly complaining about the several short walks he's been getting every day since his bathroom is under construction. Things are looking good for getting the yard put back together in time to get our garden in, but we'll be cutting it close. Which reminds me, I need to start ordering seeds . . .

Hooray for a new sewer! We got one the summer before last and, wow, what a difference. Our original lateral line was ceramic and was broken in places with roots and such and, well, you can imagine the result. We also had no vent with didn't help matters.

Speaking of gardens, last summer I decided I would choose the place for our garden and have everything in place by this year. You know how much I've done to get ready? Nothing. Yikes! Time is ticking!
