Love what you did. I think hubby was supposed to work in the yard.. NO CHECK. I worked all weekend. getting up at 5:30 am and getting off after lunch. We did make the Home show, but that about it for me.

Oh my goodness, I am so impressed Rhonda! YOU built those gadren boxes sweetie? Good for you! There's a little place upside down on the map called OZ, perhaps you've heard of her? Anyway, in OZ there lives this woman who goes by the strange name of Cottage Contessa, or some such name, anywho, she really needs help and advice in the gardening arena. Do you make house calls sweetie? I know her little cottage would be ever so happy if you did! lol Have a wonderful day, and I love your cute little helper too!

What a busy bee you were this past weekend. So fortunate for you that you had such a good helper. I'm still busy inside with my kitchen/dining room project...coming along nicely.

BellaColle said...

I actually do worry about you guys there! I tell ya, poor planning on someones part to think it would be a good idea to supply such a metropolis as there with such a tiny lake..=(
anywho... you gotta show us those beds when they are full! bursting with veggie goodness.

Kathleen Grace said...

Lucky you! It looks so nice there! I have always wanted raised beds like that:>O
I have the cookbook that goes with that book!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

Yikes! I am truly a slacker! But, it is not time to plant here yet...soon....

I have three raised beds and they look very similar to yours! When my sister visited this winter, she wanted to know who was buried there - lol...The empty beds in the winter do look a little like plots...:-).


Peggy said...

We are trying to get some raised beds planted inbetween taking care of the baby goats. Love your raised beds!

ShabbyInTheCity said...

Wow!!! Can we all come over for salad in a few weeks?

Donna said...

Oh wow! Makes me want to get out and dig in the garden!

Michelle said...

Oh wow, I spent the weekend relaxing at the ocean in an RV! It looks like you had a productive weekend..


Hope said...

Hi Rhonda,
I'm playing catch up again and I see you've been really busy. Oh to have your energy..or at least a spoonful of it!! :o)

I love you son's cute pictures in your last post. He did a good job
and so did Tigger!!


bj said...

Oh, did sooooo GOOD !!
It needs to get a tad bit warmer here and then we'll plant. Usually just onions, squash and tomatoes, and peppers. We live "in town" so haven't much room. The good thing...both daughter and son live in the country so we have great gardens.....
You have the most precious helper...give him a big hug.
hugs, bj

You were sure busy and got a lot accomplished. Your raised flower beds turned out great. We worked in our yard this past Monday and it felt good cleaning it up after all the storms.
Over the weekend we had a get-away to the coast. It was great...friends, yummy food and good weather, perfect. Have a happy evening, Linda

Esther Sunday said...

Ann said...
