Weekend Project: tree logs as hammock posts/supports

It’s been busy around the Finca! I have a ridiculous amount of tomato plants occupying a quarter of my deck, waiting to be transplanted. I have a new raised garden bed needing compost. All zucchini and cucumber are in the ground and doing nicely. We’ve been munching on fresh, raw peas for days. My lettuce has done wonders for my figure – salads galore for DAYS!!! Some of my gardening eye candy for your viewing pleasure (see: Instagram!):

 

I had a couple adult male guests last week (i.e. field hands). I had no trouble putting them to work, and did so gleefully   🙂

Here we have menfolk cutting down a dead tree:

Not one to waste things, I put same menfolk to work building something with said tree:  20170504_190249

Two days later, I now have the perfect spot to ponder and stare at my gardens for hours on end!20170507_092724

Assuming one already owns/borrows the needed tools, cost in materials? About $5 for quick set cement, $5 in rope, and $5 in eye bolts.

The hammock? A flight ticket to South America and $100 cash.
