Mark found old bricks in a cattle pasture at what was once a homestead so that was our first stop this afternoon. We use bricks to outline the ground beds surrounding the garden. Last year we found used bricks on our ranch in one of the pastures but not enough for the entire garden so we're always on the lookout. Our haul today filled in the asparagus bed but we are still lacking some for the west side of the garden.
It was fun to uncover the bricks and think about the lives of those who once
lived on this remote homestead. It was easy to visualize children playing on the prairie there. It must have been difficult to get in and out of their place when the ground was muddy or icy with all the hills and distance from the nearest road.
