    Exactly the same. I can garden without caring anything about other gardens, but I do like to look and not that I am jealous, but I want ideas for the next year. DH and I look at wood piles too. He actually is doing better than other men at church that only go out for big huge red fir. DH does not have the time or equipment and cannot go with the others because they go on the weekend and he has to work, so he has been going closer and takes DS, and sometimes my brother, DD, or me on all of us and we are getting red fir, but also lodge pole, white fir, tamarack, whatever is dry and we have a lot of wood leftover for next year. This was the first year that I did not get sap on my hands, floor, clothes.

    Oh Debbie, I really empathize with you having to endure the poison oak. I used to get poison ivy just by looking at it. Too bad they quit producing that poison ivy preventative that was an oral med. Utility/phone company linemen used to get it, because so much of their work was in poison ivy laden areas. It probably had some horrible side effects that we didn't know about. :hide

    @canesisters I've been doing the fence thing too. Sitting here totally wiped out, tired, dirty, but have made major progress. Grilled cheese sandwiches for supper again ....
