Double Decker Raised Beds

Coming soon- double decker raised bed!  Had to make room for the impending shed which will solve all kinds of problems. Can't wait for the shed. Question of the day- do we need a shed with skylight and seed starting space? Just don't know.

The milkweed is doing just fine... And we saw our first Monarch in the yard. Hopefully he'll tell all his buddies.

Woodpecker... In the front yard. Attacking the yucca. Now that doesn't happen every day. Couldn't get him on "film" but you can see his handiwork here.

Potatoes in a Bag

Opened up a bag - found a buncha potato spaghetti. That's how it goes when you don't keep track of things. Planted them in a hurry today. Some might make it.
