The Garden

For the last couple of months I have been working on a raised bed for vegetables. One of the apartment complexes down the street put in a new fence a while back. I stopped by and ask what they were going to do with the old fence. Instead of having it all go to the dump I decided to re-purpose it for my project. The wood set unused forever in the back yard but finally it is put to use.
In progress
The huge pile of dirt that was delivered to the house. All I could think is "what have I done?"
Finally the plants are in. Five kinds of pepper, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, okra, squash, and cantalope. We may have to get a booth at the farmers market when it all comes in.

When we bought all the plants the bed wasn't big enough so I added an additon for the cantalope.

Hopefully my thumb is green enough for all of this.

What I did over Spring Break.

David's parents and grandad came to visit and helped us put in a new fan, backsplash for the new oven, a working light in the kitchen and other odds and ends around the house. While they were doing the hard stuff I found time to make some pillows for the couch and curtains for the kitchen.
