Tues June 10 ~ Stucco pro Chris meets Vic's garden

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris on Tuesday. He came by later in the day to mesh up the areas that required stucco repair.

Funny thing though... I left to brew him up a pot of coffee and when I came back out, I noticed he was digging around in the garden. I yelled out "OFF TOPIC! What are you doin'? Aren't you suppose to be stuccoing?!?"

"This is something I really love doing", he replies. I now have two, TWO gardeners on staff.

Chris then proceeded to show me how to separate the lettuce. "Man, I just love doing this stuff." I asked for much more elaborate gardening instruction but he caught on pretty quick. Oh well, a girl's gotta try.

And how cool.. my stucco guy loves his Tim Horton's. He was just talking about that coffee thing when by fluke I handed him a glass mug with the TH logo on it. Chris shook his head and said, "That's sick..." But in a good way. :)

I let Chris get to work so we didn't chit chat too much the first day. He was due again soon so I knew I'd catch up with him again. Thanks Chris, your work is just awesome.

And here's a major highlight. After Chris left, this is what I found around Vic's tomato plant. Stucco metal lathing or whatever it's called. Nice touch!!! I smile everytime I walk around that tomato plant.

Look how this garden is coming along! I found Chris had hilled the potatoes as well. Dunno how he found time for the stucco work but it all got done.

And another little hidden gem of a story is beginning to take shape. Chris mentioned he'd like to take some of my lettuce and he bring me some of his red variety. Cool!

I told Vic about the growing interest for the garden. And what does he do? Wednesday he brings by potatoes from HIS garden and says, "I gotta keep up with the stucco guy!" Oh, I'm so loving the way this is all unfolding...

Thanks Chris and Vic for this lovely little garden!
