I'm also glad I finished up the laundry yesterday. My son also helped me clean out the rose bush flower bed.
This is what we started with. We first dug out all of the rose bushes and moved them to other locations. The chickens kept getting into this flower bed over the last few years. They dug out the plastic sheeting, and you can see what the did to the mulch.
We ripped out all the weeds and have it ready to replant new rose bushes. The last ones were not really what I wanted. I won't be using that plastic edging either. This project will take a few weeks to finish, along with building a chicken tractor for the barred rocks. They seem to be the ones that get into the most trouble here. Say a prayer hubby is up for the challenge.
Where there's a will, there's a way....
Update on the Coffee Jelly - it thickened up more and the kids love it. I'm up for making another new one soon.
