Guess what we did this weekend.
We read. A lot.
Then we bought some wood.
Thanks to Ana White for the idea to use cedar pickets instead of hardwood. Cheaper and I got me some red cedar now. Yee-haw!
Instead of standing out with the drunks at the Mardi Gras parades, we spent Saturday afternoon building a beautiful 2'x8' garden box. Oh, and she's definitely a beaut!
Next came the seeds. There are more than this, but I just wanted to show you how I store them. We had all of these old plastic picture things that go in binders, and the seed packets fit in the PERFECTLY. I'm so excited. I can keep all my extra seeds and our plans and notes all in one place.
Oh, and after a lot of frustration, I have decided that I am ordering seeds next year.
I'll have pictures of the final project later. Crappy weather is settling in tonight, and I didn't want to put the poor seeds out to suffer on their first night all alone, so I'll take a nice picture of the box with all the garden markers (courtesy of Ella) later in the week.
