What I Found In The Shed

I was able to take some time away from the numbers I crunch everyday to have some me time. Yes you guessed it - I did some garden work. I also took the time to visit my Mom and Pop. This is what she had blooming. I do not know the name of this amaryllis - but I thought it was worth a picture to share. Mother has at least 20 rose bushes and none are in bloom yet. Can't wait to share those with everyone.

This is an old workshelf I found in the shed out back. It was waiting to be thrown into the trash. I felt it deserved rescuing. It works out well for a potting table.

This is another piece I dug out of the shed. This is a really neat chair. It is iron and is small like a very small high chair. Not sure - but I think it looks nice in the garden.

This is what I worked on yesterday during my time off. This bed had to be extended and I found more rocks to lay around the perimeter. The flowers in this bed are doing very well. The rest of the bed will be used for a container garden since I ran up on some underground plumbing here.

This is what I did this past weekend. The vegetable garden is raked and rows placed. I think that my area is about 25x50. I will be planting the first weekend in April according to the almanac and the moon.

I had a great "work release" yesterday. This weekend I'll be visiting my daughter, hubby and grandchildren.

I like the work bench just the way it is. 25X50 is a huge garden area - Are you really going to tackle that all by yourself?

Yes I plan to do all by myself. It will be work for sure, that I expect will pay off in the end.

I like your workbench also. Great colors, and shabby garden chic.

Cute workbench! And the high chair is very cute in the garden.
You sure accomplished a lot with the flower bed and the vegetable garden preparations. Your soil looks so workable there. A little different from the glacial till and clay we have.
