I almost forgot...for Christmas I asked Justin for a garden box. We researched what we would need and how to build one (by far the best instructions are from the pioneer woman) and set off to the happiest place on earth, Home Depot, for supplies. We started this project quite a while ago and between super busy weekends and rain, we've only managed to get half way done. Anywho here are some pics of the process so far. Oh and by the way, we are building the planter on the roof of our garage, the sunniest spot in the yard and my favorite place to drink tea and read.
