Getting Over the Hump

I thought this was going to be a quick project, but it has turned out to be much more. It’s Fall, time to plant cuttings. We got this area cleared of periwinkle and berry bushes, and Will added a layer of straw.

I want to plant roses along the hillside fence for the horses to nibble. We will continue to plant cuttings of Jerusalem Sage and Rosemary. Instead of this weekend being the planting time, hubby decided to dig out the walkway to make it perfectly flat. We will eventually fill it in with wood chips. It is his mission to smooth out the humps and make everything flat. He also used the dirt to backfill the redwood bark fence and contour the hillside slope. Fingers crossed we can plant next weekend.

We’ve come a long way since starting this upper project. I remember back to May when Will and I started to dig this out. Thanks to some rain, it makes it easier to dig.
