Starting tomorrow I'm taking a week off. Until recently (with the end of the school year) I've been working six day weeks. That limits time for projects and gardening, and I really like to stay busy with projects and gardning.
The raised bed I made last year from scrap lumber left behind by the previous homeowner
Our herb garden
The watermelon patch
As a kid I used to dread the hours I spent with a hoe in my hand out in the folks pickle patch, or the endless weeding of tomatoes when my plastic army guys were calling to me. Somewhere along the line the tranquility of tending a garden became even more of a pleasant diversion than toy soldiers. Though, the truth is, both will still find me playing in the dirt...until it rains.
