Jenny - Raised Garden Beds

My husband and son spent time today hacking together some raised garden beds for our garden. With food prices rising in the markets, we're more committed than ever to expanding our vegetable garden this year. I should have some pictures soon. It warmed my heart to see the two of them hanging out and working together on this project! :)

Quick Update

Believe it or now, I went out and pruned the roses right after I made my last post.  They are all looking fine now!  The flower beds have been weeded and mulched and things are blooming like crazy.   The flowering pear and Redbud trees are showing off their stuff and the Irises have poked their heads up once again.  The blackberry bushes are filling out and the pecans are getting leaf buds on them.  The seeds that my daughter and I planted in the garden are sprouting and we're looking forward to finishing the planting now that March is here. 

The bees are out, my eyes are red, and all of our noses are running.

Must be spring time in Texas.
