Distractions from the garden

There is not much happening in the garden. I have little to show for a fall crop save a few undiscovered potatoes, some Brussels sprouts the size of my baby fingernail and some scrawny kale and Swiss chard. The next real task is to prepare the second of two garlic beds for planting mid-month.

So I have been amusing myself building garden structures. Last year when Janice Shields came to the arboretum, I made a pea trellis which has served me well this season. Yesterday Janice returned, and I spent 5 hours with her and other neighbors as we each built our own rustic garden bench. Pretty spiffy, huh?
