I know what you mean about those real jobs, but then I remind myself that because of the real job, I can buy more plants. I planted strawberries and blueberries last year. No blueberries yet, but I should have some strawberries in June!

Yes, real life jobs sure do get in the way of the fun jobs. Thanks for visiting my blog and good luck making the toad homes.

Oooh... you're going to be eating well! I love blueberries right off of the bush, warm from the sun... *drool*

Who's been a busy boy then, eh? Looks great Marc, and I love the deck you're building. Awesome.

I am looking forward to some more pictures of the deck in progress.
I like your compost pile. I just started. How long does it take to be able to use some?

Bek, thanks for the comment. You have given me the idea to write a post about how-to compost. The short answer for now is this:

Compost rots all by itself without our help in about a year. Too slow for most gardeners. If you mix brown and green materials together and keep air and water in the pile, it happens much faster. You can have finished compost in a month.

I'll get right to work on that post! For anyone who's following along, I'm taking another day off today to work on the deck!

I always say that a job is something that keeps you from doing the things that you really want to do in your life. :)

The deck is coming out great. What are you going to do with those talls posts? Are you going to hang lattice or do you have something else in mind?

You build decks! Wow! I'm impressed with it all! Looks great! I have a tomato question but I'll find a tomato post to ask it on.

Thanks and yes, the tall posts will support a shade area with lattice (and hanging plants!). I am building that corner almost like the deck I saw on the Cincinnati Cape Cod blog. Lucky for me Kasmira is very generous with sharing pictures of it. I plan to post pictures of mine when its done and send them to Kasmira, thanking her for the idea.

Gotta Garden,
Thanks also for the kind words. I answered your tomato question that you put on my Early Girl post. I hope it works out for you.
