Weekend Fun and Gardening!

This weekend was absolutely gorgeous!

We had a great time being outside most of the weekend.  Saturday Jason had to work some and he had to miss my Momaw’s birthday dinner.  It went great though!  I was able to see all my aunts and uncles and of course spend some good time with my Momaw!  Rylan was able to play with everyone and enjoy himself too!  As always, he steals the show!

We started our garden this weekend.  I wanted to do raised beds only this year so the Husband began planning and constructing the beds based on the dimensions I told him I needed.  I wanted 3 – 4X8 beds and 1 – 8X8 bed.  He was able to finish two of my 4X8 beds and he is planning to finish the other 4X8 and 8X8 this week or this coming weekend.

He used treated 2X12’s for the sides, weed blocking fabric stapled to the bottom, PVC pipes cut and screwed into each corner as well as the middle of the long boards, and chicken wire stretched around the PVC to keep the dogs, deer and other critter out.
