After living in our house for over 20 years, we finally decided to do a complete landscape makeover. It will take dozens of DIY projects to finish the job. To get things started, I dusted off my old power tools and made these two planter boxes, a perfect project for a beginning woodworker. Find out how I did it!
Spring planting is complete…for now! But the wacky weather presented some unexpected challenges that may force me to replant. Heavy wind and rain and a Mother’s Day weekend frost required some quick, DIY solutions to protect the tender seedlings. Did my excessive “hardening off” save them?
The last frost date has passed and planting has begun! It’s been a busy month of soil preparation, more seed starting experiments, yard clean-up, DIY projects. And already we’ve been harvesting our lettuce and perennial herbs! What a treat to have healthy food right outside our front door.
