Biking on the GMR Trail

It was a beautiful day today so I decided a bike outing was in order. Today’s route was to check out the section of trail I hadn’t ridden yet between Hamilton and Rentschler forest. Much of it runs on the tow path for the Miami Erie Canal and the remains of the canal are visible most of the way.

Gardening and Yard Work

Well, we’re WAY behind in getting our gardens placed, mostly due to money.  Things are just now starting to pick up with the new job and it’s slow going.  We found a few bucks to get started yesterday and we decided that one of the things we decided we wanted was some window boxes on the back stoop, so we started there.

As part of the process we also got a hosta to fill one of the holes in an existing bed.  When we got to that, I found myself annoyed with a branch hanging over. That lead to getting out the loppers. That then lead to getting out the chain saw.  By the time the dust settled we’d trimmed back a mass of stuff along the horse farm fence that had been bugging us forever…
