Garden and Coop Scrounging
I also discovered that this box was sitting in the back of our property. At first, we thought it was a cabinet that was left, there is junk all over the woods here, so we didn't give it much thought. Until, I saw it with new eyes today.
Music Man and I tried several places on the property to place the garden. We mulled over our options and decided to put it up the hill from the back of the house. See, I'm one of those weird garden people that find the garden beautiful. Trellises full of peas and beans, tomato cages bursting with red orbs, pepper plants in full fruit and flowers planted to ward off bugs are all works of art for me. I like to have the garden viewable from the main living spaces of our home. So, we chose the location we thought would be not only great for the sun exposure, but the aesthetic beauty of the flora and fauna and food for us to soak in daily. After two years without a garden, I'm very ready for that loveliness to grace my light of sight again.
Music Man pounded in some markers to determine the best place for the gate (the first picture is the gate just waiting for some fence posts to hold it up!).
Wishing you all some spring plans for your mental health, ~Peacemom
