It's all gotta go somewhere

One Day Project

Over the last few years, since we moved into this house, we’ve been talking about making a small raised garden bed in which to grow veggies. It always seemed like too large of a project, until I read a “recipe” for a raised bed in Sunset magazine. After reading it, I still thought it was too big of a project…but Jeff felt sure he could buy all the materials and construct it in 1 day.

And we did!

Jeff did all the heavy lifting and I just did the end bits: planting our starts. Broccoli, kale, and beets went into the raised bed (we’d already planted containers with contain carrots, parsley, cilantro, and cabbage).

    Wow, great job on the new raised garden. Send the crew out here. We have a lot projects.

    Beautiful job working as a family! First class job!! How wonderful to have all that “free child labor”…as Jeff would put it! Is there anything he can’t do? What a hoot to see Dash wearing his sun hat working with a broom and rake. Loved the pic of him and Jeff taking a break on the lawn carpet. I felt like I was there but didn’t have to get my hands dirty. Thanks Maida!
