Lots of activity today, delivery of the three large cocoanut trees and 4 loads of dirt delivered. Billy was reshaping the dirt loads into the garage pad as fast as Perkins Trucking was delivering it. We've got the basic pad there now, just need to round it off and make our driveway approach to the garage door area.
We need to order three more pallets of the stacking wall stones, they turned out so nice, we want to continue the wall all the way around to the garage entrance. Gary was on hand again today and put another coat of primer on the lower part of the dome. He'll finish up priming today with another coat.
We got our three froth packs delivered by UPS late in the afternoon, those are for the wrinkles around all the large augments. Billy will foam them and then plane them smooth.
Billy took some photos of the fruit that is coming on the various trees and plants he placed around the yard. Billy lovingly tended to all these trees and plants and is expecting them to provide us with lots of fruit. We'll be lucky if the storms don't blow the fruit off the trees before they are ripe enough to pick (like last year).
Looks like we'll be spared from Emily, she's going south, but we're watching two more depressions coming off of Africa. We'll be painting and filling on Thursday.
