I am a Coin Dealer near Chicago Illinois by trade. With the economy as bad as it is. My days are filled with stories of people loosing their jobs, house getting foreclosed, divorce, and the stresses of peoples lives. They don't want to sell their gold, silver, coins or currency. Most have had these items in their family for generations but with the times they have to sell. My job is thriving right now and I have decided to give back to my family, friends and whoever else I see that can use help. I am planning a very large garden project this year that will take up my back and front yard.
We had a large Willow Tree that my grandmother planted 60 years ago take on some major damage last fall and today I commissioned a crew to take it down next week for $1200. This will open up a lot of sun in my back yard. Glad nothing happened to my 500 year old oak in the back...
I found an exceptional deal on 4X4 4ft. landscape timbers. I bought about 200 of them. I am going to be constructing many 4X4 garden boxes stacked 2 high, so 8 timbers per. I will be posting pictures of progress through out this year. I am more that excited about this project and can't wait to share it with this site.
