    New Garden Box

    Tore down the old shed, but the wood and everything is still piled up. (Waiting for dumpster). A neighbor over the driveway asked about using some of the wood, which I had no problem with whatsoever. Talked to him about a trade... I wanted some of wood to build a garden box and asked if he could just use his saw to cut some pieces to size for me - I'm thinking just nail some together into a rectangle and put int he yard - and he could use anything else. He offered to make the box! Two hours later, I have a beautiful box, lined and ready to load with compost! He and I both agreed... bartering rocks!!!

    Thanks, everyone. Spent yesterday filling new box with compost and soil. Had help from the kids next door with the seeds and now have a row of radishes and a row of turnips planted. Rainy, wet day today, so timing was great for once. LOL.
