(re)capturing the fun & wonder

We’ve got raised beds!

Raised beds in the making.

All winter long we day-dreamed about the garden. We drew up plans, scoured seed catalogs, browsed a gazillion websites. There are few things I enjoy more than planning day-dreaming – my wish list of things I'd like to do around the house is pretty extensive – we just don't have the funds right now, so I guess it's a good thing I enjoy the planning phase just as much! I'm so glad the weather is warm enough now to get started on the out-doors :-)

Inspired by my colleagues at Super Eco, I asked Tomas if he could build me some raised beds so we could have fresh veggies all summer long. It was a great opportunity to get the kids involved, too, with loads of measuring & fun calculations – for some reason none of us could get our heads around the concept of a cubic square foot – and lovely dirt to dig into.

Next up is a vote on what to plant!
