This week is the kids’ last full week of school, so I’m bracing myself for a much louder (and hungrier) house as we roll into the summer months.
On Friday’s edition of 5+1, I gave you a peek at the raised garden beds I was constructing, thanks to the brilliantly talented Ana White. I have finished four of them now, and I might add some more, since I still have some fence pickets left in my garage. What I love about these raised beds, is how easy it is to add more of them if you want to expand the size of your garden.
I do still need to add trim pieces to the tops of three of these raised beds, but I was in a hurry to get my veggies planted, so I had to prioritize. You can see the difference between these two beds if you look closely. The one on the right is trimmed out on the top.
I previously had a garden in this same spot, but like the more organized look of raised beds, and I’m hoping that fresh soil this year will do me some good as well. Last year was a sad gardening year – really wet and cooler than normal – not conducive to my growing veggies. Fingers crossed that this year is successful.

My husband just commented that my beds look like coffins. Awesome.
I also planted my flowers in my pots, so it’s been a very physical weekend, as you might imagine.
I’m getting ready to start working on some bathroom cabinets this week, and am excited to be doing them in a great shade of gray – looking forward to sharing the transformation!
Have a great day!
