When I came up with a completely different idea for our former vegetable garden, he never flinched. Just got out the tiller, built me a custom arbor, filled a pickup with 1/2 cubic yard of the best compost RI has to offer, unloaded it, built me a raised bed for kale/swiss chard, and filled it with the compost.
This is his vacation, too. Don't forget that he has trimmed, edged and tidied up the rest of the yard, too... including the overgrown raspberries. A BIG THANK YOU. Someday we will sit in the new garden together listening to the sound of water.... and sipping rootbeer floats!!!
