Here are some of the fun projects I’ve been doing outside.
We put in a large garden this year (1200 sqft) with carrots, asparagus, corn, beets, okra, cauliflower, squash, beans, cucumber, tomatillos, peppers, tomatoes, and lettuce. Oh and did I mention weeds? Yes, they seem to grow faster and better than anything else. Go figure!
I built some pepper “cages” out of bamboo sticks. We have bamboo growing on the edge of the orchard so they were free.
I also spent the better part of a Saturday putting up some trellis and getting my rose bush to climb it. This display was sure worth it!
Yard fence and gate
Hubby, my dad, and I also spent some time putting in a back gate out to our pond.
Then I started work on our yard fence.
Each post has an 80 lb bag of concrete and about 15 lbs of rock in it. Good thing I’ve built my strength carrying kids around all day!
As you can see, I still have a ways to go. Thank goodness hubby will be home all weekend! Btw, he’s the one that rented an auger and dug all the holes.
Hope you’re finding some outdoor fun this spring too. Get some vitamin D, but be sure to protect your skin from the UV.
