And am I ever getting a collection sir. Grand Nains, Blue Java, Gold Finger, Bordelon, Ensete Maurelii and now the Nam Wah. Also have key limes and a couple of different lemons, 'maters (tomatoes), cukes, mint, basil, rosemary, and some other stuff along those lines PLUS sabal palms, sagos, fan palms, blueberries and some unknown palmy-like plant around the pool. The yard isn't that big either. It's crazy I tell ya. Hate it that we're moving but making the pool a tropical paradise so the decision maker says "honey I have to have this one". They may overlook all the other battle scars....

I love what you did with the place. That 1.75" will have zero deflection and  proportions nicely with your hardware. Don't use the food safe mineral oil here. Non-Drying with zero build.

 

Drying oil (BLO or Tung) schedule:

Oil once each day for 1 week

Oil once each week for 1 month

Oil once each year for life

opted for Boiled Linseed oil on the rack Looks much better, In fact it looks easily as good as Mapleshade maple shelves IMHO

Almost a year without a dog. So hard to put them down and say goodbye. Today is pretty exciting. First non-greyhound in 20 years

Clover, rplace.  Now that's a lawn.  None of that monoculture grass stuff.  It's good for the soil, too.

Were your greyhounds rescue dogs? There used to be a group in Chattanooga which placed greyhounds to good homes.

All natural here. I'm too lazy for chemicals, fertilizers and the like. Heck, it is luck if it gets cut.

Yes, two different rescue groups in it central PA and WV area. I've had dogs from CT, WV and Daytona Beach. All wonderful retired racers. Sadly the breed has a lot of osteosarcoma (Bone Cncer). We had to put two down less than a year apart and they were only 7 and 8 years old. The first one made it to 14.
