Yet another raised bed (I can sleep there mommy?)

No.  Not that kind of bed.  That will be in a future post about the new bed frame that will arrive at our home sometime in november, I hope...

Anyway, so last Monday, I built another raised bed in my flurry of wanting to be busy.  I'm pretty decent at building these now, speedy, if not precise.

Yes, there is a giant gap at the bottom.  This did not perturb me in the least.  I went to my trusty home depot and bought myself a 2x4x8 and fixed it up.  Filled it with dirt today with the help of my step-dad's trusty truck.  He also smashed into a deer while picking up the second load of dirt, which I now feel terrible about... luckily (and hopefully) no one was hurt, and the damage is mostly superficial.  Still. Ack.  But my raised bed is complete!  This weekend, I will plant things in it so they can establish themselves a bit before winter and be ready to grow more in spring.
Note the addition of said 2x4 at the bottom.  Go me!

I'm also going to plant garlic!  Whee!

Jeez, Tiff. You are half woman, half amazing. Is there anything you can't do?

Eh, I'm just a little good at lots of things. But thank you! :) And I don't like taking the garbage out.
