the Trash vitae

Trash is the editor-in-chief of an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializes in books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others.

a Tinkerers job is never done...

Monday was a day of tinkering.. The rose bed needed to be redone. It has never been worked in the 4 years we have been there/. I had to remove the layers of bark and the god-awful weed fabric underneath it. This exposed concrete soil.. Yes it was so hard and compacted it is like concrete.. It needs exposure to the rain and water and to be modified to loosen up a bit. More work for me..
I also spent part of Sunday and yesterday tinkering on the bikes for the kids and wife. We took a bike ride to the store on Sunday and spent yesterday afternoon at the neighborhood pool. Before heading home for sandwiches and lemonade for supper.
Summertime is over..
Back to Fall and more prepping.
How about you all?
