On the weekend we managed to finish all the four garden boxes we wanted for our square foot garden. We recycled old pieces of wood for the sides and bought a couple sheets of gypsum board for the bottom of the boxes. The boxes measures 4'x4' and 10" deep.
The boys helped out too! The thought it was pretty exciting.
We poured the recommended mixture in them (1/3 peat moss, 1/3 compost, 1/3 vermiculite), but we ran out for the third box. So we figure we would leave it for one more week before we would plant anything.
It's a good thing, because look what we got today...
Yup, SNOW! And lots of it. Very strange indeed! I think mother nature is having a little revenge with us.
It's May long weekend here. Everyone is out camping and enjoying the spring like weather. We on the other hand are trying to get our garden going. This year I'm going to to try this square foot gardening. It suppose to be very low maintenance. I sure like the sounds of that. There is rain in the forecast, so I hope we can get the garden in before then.
With Darcy home an extra day on Monday, it gives me much needed extra time during the day to work on my crafts. Long weekends are definitely a good thing!
It's always nice to visit Edmonton. It was nice to see my aunt and uncle, spend some time with family, and hang out with some friends.
Now back to creating and crafting in full force so I can be ready for the Diva Delight coming up in June. My laptop is still down (no printable, poo!), but my awesome friend Nash is fixing it for me. It's great to have tech friends!
Of course I couldn't have gone without doing some sort of craft when I was away. This is what I was working on.
