Got another string of lights for the backyard. The new ones are LED while the old are not, and the new are much brighter. It’s messing with my backyard feng shui.
When I put in the trellis’ for my raspberries and blackberries it occurred to me that it might be cool to have some post cap lights on the top. I wasn’t sure how bright they’d be – just thought it might be interesting in the yard at night. One possible other thing would be that if bright enough, they might discourage critters at night. I ordered some up and installed them yesterday. Easy, affordable and efficient. The photos in the dark were challenging and don’t really do them justice, but you get the idea. I think they might not also have been fully charged. Might try and get a better ‘lighted’ photo later.
Things continuing to come along. First appearance of the potatoes in the small 3′ box.
Little bit of action starting in the planter boxes and berries starting to come along.
Over the years I’ve kept all my tools a plethora of ways, often due to what was on hand. The current Clubhouse has a dearth of wall space for your traditional pegboard, but at least there’s a nice view. I’d settled on keeping everything in a toolbox on the bench. Recently I picked up a @parktoolblue tool caddy for my stand. I liked it but was frustrated with having to reach around/through the bike for tools. Then I had the caddy mounted on a wall but that didn’t work either. Some tools in the caddy, some in the tool box – it was no good for my feng shui. I kept moving the stand around to try and get optimal stand/tool/bench positioning. “If only this stand had wheels,” I thought. But that wouldn’t work, it would fall over. But what if the TOOLS had wheels. I had this dolly I’d made to move furniture collecting dust in the garage. I had my base. I had these handles that came with the kids’ playground – long since deconstructed – that I was saving for some reason, because reasons. Sometimes things just align. Behold the CABC Tool Roller V.1.0. There’s even a hanger for my @randijofab apron made from an old rear cable hanger. If I ever have to move furniture again, I’m screwed, but moving furniture sucks anyway.
