Jeff has been busy this week digging rain gardens. On Monday, he dug one for the backyard.
Today he worked on the front yard. For more information about the process, see his explanatory blog post. For this rain garden, he's built a berm along the sidewalk.There are two more small rain gardens to go for the gutters on the side of the house. Unfortunately, one of them needs to get across a driveway. There will be some cement pounding in Jeff's future.
Sharon is busy shopping for plants. The Portland Audubon Society has a native plant sale coming up soon and we need plants for these gardens.
