it's time for a backyard update! we've been busy little springtime yard fairies making all sorts of changes and improvements.
first, brian built us this new raised garden bed with some recycled lumber we were gifted from friends who were doing some yard projects of their own. that weekend my apple tree was all pink with buds.
the next weekend i went up to the cities to pick up our two new rain barrels that we got through a program run by recycle minnesota. i can not even begin to tell you how excited i am to now have two rain barrels!!
then the following week brian and some friends filled up our new bed with dirt we were gifted by a neighbor of our friends (hooray for all these donated materials!! when all was said and done, all we had to purchase for this project was the extra large nails to build the bed and a couple 6-packs of beer we gave out as thank yous!) i am so so excited to get some veggies growing in my new garden bed!!
in the week and a half it took for us to complete this project my apple tree bloomed!
we've got a few more yard projects up our sleeves so stay tuned!!
