Building The Veggie Garden


Papa started on our raised veggie garden for next year early this morning . I did some house work and laundry . He did a lot of hauling and digging  and I… well… I did what I could  he is the muscle and of course Miggs …well.. she supervised and napped in between supervising lol .

Papa decided to have a camp fire going to as we have lots of wood that cant go in the wood stove to burn .

The weather was lovely and warm with cool breezes all though not cool enough for Papa after all the hauling and digging lol. The best part of the garden has been built the rest will be done come the spring as we have to let it settle and see how much it shifts if at all over the winter and spring thaw .  Next to tackle the wood another big job .

                        Yes the older you get the harder things get and the more you feel it  lol

         Done for the day and relaxing before supper . BBQ marinade steak , potatoes and Cesar salad .

                                                     Until next time  … have a good day !

At least you had a good day to prepare next year's garden, which at first had me confused if you doing one for this year, Elaine. Miggs looked like a good supervisor too.

A raised garden is a great idea. What are you going to grow in it? Valerie

That is going to be a fantastic raised veggie garden. I'm sure you are already planning what will go in there.
