Remember how I mentioned we had been having quite a few fires in the area? Well, saturday morning we heard a REALLY loud and low flying helicpoter. We ran outside to see how close it was, and seen that it was filling up a water bag from the river in front of our house.
He made over 20 trips! We (or rather I) did start to get a little concerned when I realized he was only gone for about 3 minutes between trips. Fortunately they must have gotten the fire out because by mid afternoon he had quit coming. :) At that point I was pretty excited because my sweetie started building boxes for my garden.
We have had the wood for YEARS. Originally purchased it to build a fence in our backyard at our house back in Prosser... and never got around to using it. I'm kind of glad now.... I used some of it to build backdrops for photographing the Science Posters, and now we are using almost all of it to make boxes for my Vegetable garden! I have BIG dreams for that garden, and we finally have the space to have a big garden.... so I'm dreaming... BIG. Fortunately I have a husband that has been very supportive with my dreaming. I'll have to share the garden plan I did in photoshop. I still need to tweak a few things. :) This is going to be a very slow process, as budget allows. I'm just hoping to maybe be able to plant a few heads of lettuce, maybe some spinach leaves for a winter garden. Mainly, I just want to be ready for next Spring! How rewarding that will be. :)
Are you dreaming of a garden? Do you have any suggested resources for ideas? I've collected a few ideas over the years on this pinterest board.
