Digging up the garden – End of May 2009

This year I’m going to double the size of the garden, so it will be going from 8′ x 16′ to 16′ x16′. The rhubarb is going to take up a lot of space this year. About a 4′ x 8′ section of the garden is already being used up by the rhubarb.

I finished about half of the digging last weekend, and about another quarter this weekend. I ended up using a mattock it dig up all the grass. If I owned or had rented a roto-tiller, this would have been done in a couple of hours. I guess I’m a glutton for punishment.

    It’s funny that you brought that up. I just noticed on one of the internal web sites where I work. That they have a calender on the homepage announcing employment anniversaries, starting at your 5th year with the company, then going in 5 year increments until your retirement party. Talk about a sad looking calendar, especially when one of the people in my area just hit 20 years at the company, in pretty much the same middle manager position. If that doesn’t open your eyes to the myth that people are fed in companies about the “opportunities for advancement”, I don’t know what would.

  • Just like working for (Insert Company Name), wasting time with the appearance of “forward progress”…

    Because I was mowing the lawn to begin with, and it only took about three passes with the mower to trim it down. Plus it gives me the illusion of forward progress with this project.
