A few weks ago I made a scarf for Tim… in trade he said he’d help me build something, and I chose a garden in the back yard. So today he came over and we headed off to HomeDepot.

We saw people in crazy costuming on our way… I think they must have been part of this. Fun looking group, for sure.

Tim and I bought some wood, topsoil, paint, and plants. We made a big mess in the backyard, but it eventually shaped up to a really nice planter box. I now am the proud care-taker of two basil plants, one tomoto plant, a jalapeno, cucumbers, mint and some other non-herbs…. I think its a good start, and I can’t wait to watch them grow.
