Compost Bin, Part 2
I set the work aside for a couple of days to catch up on weeding while the weather was cool. But it hit 90F yesterday, so it was a good day to work in the cool basement.
So, I mentioned using the tenon jig to make half-lap joints...
This is the jig.
I'll show that next time. Meanwhile, there are some old deteriorated beds where I want to install the new compost bin, so I need to demolish those first. And there is a shrub I want to save from there.
This isn't the best time of year to move a shrub, but I don't have much choice. I think I will take a dozen tip-cuttings and try and root them indoors before digging the shrub up. And I'll make the rootball extra large to give it a best chance to survive the transplant shock.
Tomorrow is predicted to hit 92F, so I don't think I want to do serious work outside then, but I'll break up the framed bed it is in and get that part done.
And I have work I can do inside or outside in shade. I really try to do as much work as possible in the shade. LOL!
