Last summer, Larry built a raised bed for a garden in our backyard. He fenced most of it in to try to keep deer and other eaters of vegetables from getting all the food.
Then the raised bed sat and waited for spring to come.
Leaves gathered in the fencing during the fall.
Snow surrounded it during parts of the winter, making it look lonely.
But finally warm weather has come and stayed long enough to ready the bed for dirt and seeds. Today we’ll be busy beginning the work that I hope will lead to a nice harvest later this year.
By Monday, we’ll probably have sore muscles. But I’m looking forward to being outside and getting my hands in some dirt.
What will you be spending your weekend doing?
