I am rather sick and tired of being sick and tired, so I'm heading to the doctor today. I'm OK during the day, but I cough horribly all night long. Last night, I slept for two hours and sat on the couch coughing the rest of the night. However, life still going on.
JD built our first raised garden bed. We used left-over supplies from our house-building adventure. We are building two beds this year, then have plans for five more over the next few years. Eventually we may fence in the garden area as well.
We filled the beds with top soil, ash from bon-fires, some used chicken bedding and five bags of soil conditioner. I hope this all works out, we are far from garden experts!
Little Julia worked so hard cutting the bags open with her little red safety scissors. I love to have the little guys working along side us outside. When my Mom gardened, I was never involved (nor did I want to be) but I want my kids to enjoy our time together and gain some knowledge from all our projects outside.
Yesterday was Alei's 16th birthday, but I can't post pictures of our little celebration until they are Alei-approved. We are 48 hours from big party and I have so much to do! First, I need some strong anti-biotics!
