Umm...what month is it again?

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

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.
