Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow!?

Ceased work on my deck to work on a raised bed. Took my old one which never was tall enough, added a second story plus a 2x6 trim to the top. All was done using scraps from deck construction.

Is it Spring yet?

Last year I wasn't terribly inspired to garden, but for some reason this week's arrival of the Tomato Growers' seed catalog has awakened the beast within. I cannot wait to get started!! Must resist. In the meantime, I'll be plotting my next project destined for disaster--I want to put in a raised bed on the side of our house. It will technically be in the front yard which is against the great leader's HOA's rules, so I need to make it look all fancy like and pretty. This is the only spot left in our entire yard that has even a bit of sun. Unless I figure out how to plant things on my roof. Don't underestimate the power of crazy.
