I have mentioned many times, that we love to garden and that we are planning a potager. Well, this earth day weekend blessed us with beautiful weather and it also happened to be hubby's three day weekend. We ended up making two trips to the hardware store and buying the lumber and supplies needed. We still had gift cards and the cash we made selling our entertainment centre stand on our first trip. We also had a coupon. If you spent $75, you would get a $15 gift card. We went over my the cost of a rose stock and got the gift card. When we came home, we found three more gift cards in the mail box from our Visa points. This allowed us to go back and purchase the rest of the lumber. So all in all, we only spent a little over 9 dollars on the garden.

Some of the boards still need painting, but you can see that it is a simple boat. There is a platform with a steering wheel and underneath is a kitchen and hanging beside is my baby swing. The kids are thrilled. It is made of scraps, except for the main posts, which we planned and set in concrete. Everything else was made up as it was being built. For a man, who claims he can't build anything, I think he did a great job.
Now we have a garden, without garden soil. That will arrive next week. We ordered a cu. yard to fill the boxes and bought a few bags of pro-mix to fill the cold frame, Owen's box, some window boxes and planters. Earth Day weekend was a green weekend here. I can't wait for the first harvest and neither can my gardener buddy, Owen.
On another note, I received an email from a good Catholic friend, saying that Earth Day marks the day of St. Francis of Assisi's birthday. He was an enviromentalist of his time. Neat, huh?
I hope you had a great Earth Day and weekend. God Bless, Friends.
