Late in the spring I mentioned that we moved the rhubarb plants to a new planter and were then going to be removing the old rhubarb area. This took place last week. Josh borrowed a co-worker's skid steer and in no time at all moved all the dirt and tree roots that had been in place. With those gone the next project on the list has begun.
Since the deck was built six years ago the ground has settled a bit. The summer Josh is building new deck supports and reconstructing the support system for each of the posts. This is slow work as only one support can be removed at a time. But slow and steady the work is progressing. Here is to a better, stronger deck for the years to come!
