Saturdays are for projects

If Fridays are for parties & Sundays are for worship then Saturdays are for projects! I like to think our main project this Saturday was a noble (if not altogether altruistic) cause; building my aforementioned black thumb mother a raised herb garden for Mother’s Day.

The irony of someone like myself, with minimal to zero knowledge about gardening, thinking that this is a good idea is not lost on me. But thankfully I had this handsome guy to assist me in the heavy lifting (and to generally fulfill the obligatory good-looking half of this partnership).

And let’s be honest, if you’ve ever stepped foot on anything resembling a farm you know that it’s not a bonafide project without a farm animal supervising every step of the way.

And of course my delight of a sister (too busy of a bee to be in a picture) poured a considerable amount of blood sweat and tears (okay, perhaps just sweat) into the digging of this masterpiece.

Beginning to end in all it’s glory. The project required digging into a solid clay hill, using leftover boards that were just hanging around the farm to make the edges, filling it with a ridiculous amount of good soil and then lovingly, tenderly (I obviously did this part) planting the herbs into the ripe soil.

And viola, a little water and a lot of love (of food at least) and you got yourself an herb garden.

Now let’s just hope it stays alive.

Love you, Mom! Thanks for being so awesome!
