That's what we have a lot of right now, but when you look where we started . . .
a ton of unseasoned (and uncut) firewood
to deciding we could finally plant a kitchen garden of raised beds
to painting everything black
to assembling them Lincoln Log style with L brackets
to stakes used every 18 inches to hold it all together
to buying 1 1/2 cubic yards of compost to fill these beauties
to laying out the squarefoot garden
to laying out the plan
to getting some herbs started before the rains came.
So I guess we have a bit more than dirt to offer. Would you like some sage or parsley?
(Oh dear, don't tell my principal what a HUGE run-on sentence I just wrote. Please don't read my blog for grammar tips. I mean I try to do it right, but sometimes you just have to write the way you talk, do you agree?)
Worker Bee and I are both SO excited to get this project started and now just have the fun of planting and gardening. We will have herbs, vegetables and a cutting flower garden.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
By the way, does anybody have a great NO pesticide solution for slugs and snails? We've got them bad!
I'm linking up today with the party at All Things Related with Rebekah and Bridgette.
Did you know they picked my birthday projects as one of their favorites? I was all giggly and goofy over it. I am SO flattered.
Oooh - what was that noise? Yes it was my ginormous head being popped by the Worker Bee's stinging wit! Don't worry with the Worker Bee on board nothing will go to my head!
Be sure to check out the other goings on over at All Things Related.
I'll be sure to share some zucchini with you when they are ripe.
