This is the little courtyard we build outside the Potting shed last autumn, using old, old bricks, brickbats and stone. It really needed a Pergola overhead.
So now you know what those cedars are for.
The grapes were sitting in their pots simply bursting at the seams and longing for a place to climb.
It has the Peabody boys stamp of approval.
That's important, because, after all, the Peabody boys will undoubtedly perch atop the rafters to taste test all those divine grapes which will be POURING over the sides this summer! ( I planted 8 vines, yummy!)
I think it will be quite beautiful once the greens start clambering up the poles and across the top.
It's very simple, but stout and rustic. Just what I like!
Of course, the Lord of the Manor did require my assistance, you know, holding hammers, measuring poles, filling his cup with ice, etc. etc.
I am indispensable.
Total cost: Under $20
(Nails and gas for the chain saw)
This project took 3 days, that includes the acquisition of all those logs.
AND he also built a raspberry trellis long enough to contain 12 raspberry canes!!!
