Autumn is upon us, so I set about expanding the leaf weir with the summer’s tree cuttings. Weaving in the branches I had gathered raised the level of the weir by about a foot, and extended it several feet toward the sunflowers.
What appears to be ground level is actually the top of a year’s worth of yard waste. And if you look closely you can see my Garden Hammer, a homemade 7 pound sledge. C says it makes me look like a crazy person when I use it. She’s probably right, but it drives a stake like nothing else. You’re not a master of your craft until you make your own tools.
