garden plot

We spent a good portion of the last two weekends building a raised bed out of cinder blocks in our backyard, filling it with dirt, and planning out what we want to grow. It's really exciting, since all we've had room to grow in the past has been a couple of tomato plants and some herbs. I can't wait to try growing peas, carrots, zucchini, two kinds of onions, shallots, garlic, peppers and greens. Yum!

Of course, when you're married to a graphic designer who loves his job, designing the garden plot becomes a whole new ballgame.

I present to you, our garden plot masterpiece!

He cracks me up. Every time we have moved into a new apartment or done some serious rearranging, he busts out the illustrator files and plots everything out down to the last quarter of an inch. It both drives me crazy, and I love him for it.

I had to laugh when I saw that the zucchini has overrun its boundaries even before it's planted!

i totally feel like i need to do this to get a handle on our garden. we've got a couple raised beds and a space in the landscaping where we also grow veggies. i've got seeds and seed potatoes and i'm still feeling frustratingly paralyzed. ugh! i bet the nice weather headed out way this weekend will help get the show on the road!

I love it! My husband is the same way, too. I'm more the figure it out as you go type.

I love this idea. I usually scribble something in a notebook but I think this looks more inspiring.
