Sprucing up the garden with upcycling

I can't believe it's been three weeks since we built our neighborhood gardens.

And my plants are coming along nicely. All the seeds I planted have sprouted - beans, radishes, onions, carrots, and lettuce. And I've even had to thin my beans and radishes since all my seeds took. My summer squash are touting some lovely blossoms, and my tomato plants are starting to get some tiny flowers. Not bad for my first veggie garden!

This past weekend I finally found the time to fancy up some of the area around the gardens and made use of the pallets leftover from the wood/soil delivery. With my drill, extra wood, and some screws, I made a handy tool center for everyone to use, and then a colorful herb garden with few seeds planted. Hopefully my green thumb can spread its magic outside my own garden box.

Hopefully a composter is in our near future.

In the meantime, I'll be taking off some time from work over the next few weeks. Gotta get back to crafting!


  1. Jim got me a composter for my birthday. The rest of my family thought I was insane, but I was super excited.

  2. Great gift! I got a juicer for my birthday. Love it, but I feel bad trashing all the pulp. I really need to get something soon for my own sanity/comfort
