The goldfinches have turned from a dull brown to bright yellow.
The baskets on the side are where our potato plants will grow. Or, at least they're supposed to grow. [crossing fingers] As we are short on garden equipment such as a tiller and a strong back, we decided instead to build a raised bed. I used these instructions that I found on the Pioneer Woman website. Easy peasy. Only, I let the lady at the store talk me into using cedar because its resistant to bugs and holds up well outside. Well...perhaps those were good reasons to use cedar but it costs MUCH more than the plain pine boards I was going to use. Well, live and learn.
What's with the squares on the garden? I'm using the Square Foot Gardening technique. I used to have a book on it...or still do but can't find it [sigh] Either way, its a proven way of getting high yield out of a small garden. Many gardening companies now even sell square foot garden kits.
Anyway...just thought I would share a little of what's going on around here today.
