There's alway a lot to do around here, but hopefully this year, the changes we make will help Jumanji feel more manageable. Again. One plant at a time. Jumanji was taking over when I moved in 5 years ago, and although I'm not as far ahead as I planned on being, we're getting there!
After spending a lovely weekend up North in Orillia w/ the Fam, we got back and I was struck with another nasty migraine. Boo. I didn't get anything done for the first few days this week, but luckily it was beautiful out tonight after work to do a bit of bustling about.
A couple of months ago, I had found some concrete blocks on the internet for 50¢ each. Home Depot never seemed to have what we wanted, so I sent GW to grab 20 of these blocks from a Baptist with a fallout bunker. Seriously. We plan to use some of the blocks as the base of a bench, some as a retaining wall for a garden and some for holding up a rain barrel - yes more projects.

We had an old one in the yard but
the 'seat' part was too deep to sit on.

Between the fence and the house,
we're going to put up a trellis --->

I've also started preparing the veggie garden excitement!
|This turned out not to be the best|
way to start them; too soggy.
|This was day 3!|
|Eek! Day 7!! Seriously!|
And in doing all this, I couldn't help but start dreaming of the new plants that we'll buy to replace the ones that we're pulling out...
Check out my "garden" board on Pinterest!
I think, in a few years, we'll have the garden down to things that grow without much worry, stay where they're supposed to, and have a bit of interest to them too.
How does your garden grow?
