My family and I have many dreams and plans in mind, some of which are already in the works, and as a result, this seemed like the perfect time to kick things off.
- we have started building our raised bed vegetable garden; my brother and my dad are making the boxes mostly out of reclaimed wood, and we are filling them with organic soil that we bought a few days ago - the first batch (of 3) was delivered just yesterday! The land that our house sits on is very sandy, and as a result we didn't have a great payoff from our small garden last year, but are hoping that all our efforts this year will make a difference.
- as a Mother's Day present, we bought two (still little) lilac trees yesterday to add to our already generous amount of flowers. Our spring is about to get a lot more colourful - and better scented too!
- even more flowers are in the plans, as my brother is building planter boxes to be filled with colourful blooms and hung onto the fence surrounding the house.
