    My raised garden is about two feet deep. It didn't get enough support to keep it from bowing out. It is made of cedar about 4 boards high with supports at the end and the middle. It started bowing in the middle.

    Dh did mention growing some things in pots on the deck. That's probably what I'll do for now. There are just too many other things that need more attention this year, including aging parents that are taking soooo much time right now.

    We are also caring for ds' dogs while he's deployed and I've caught them jumping into my raised bed. Maybe I'll get it all fixed by the end of the year and it will be ready for next year.

    There's never enough time for home projects, so I get that.

    One our huskies used to jump up on our counter height table garden so she could lay in the sun on the warm dirt. She liked to curl up in a big round pot, too. And sleep on the pool table in the house, too. You would think the couch would have been more comfy than slate.

    I got the seeds started in the little indoor gh. Our house is cool so I'm not sure how well they will sprout. It's still too cold here to do anything in the outside greenhouse.

    Hope things warm up for you soon, SD.

    Started turning the soil over in my plot over the weekend. I still need to pick up seeds but I can do that in the next week or so. The first official 'work' day for the garden is in May. That's when we make sure we have our money and paperwork in as well as do some cleanup from the winter.

    Sigh. My local Wegmans no longer carries seeds. Apparently this particular store is considered "too small". (It's pretty big.) So I'll have to go to my local Lowes or Home Depot to get my seeds. Sigh.

    I am wondering what to do this year since I will be away for a few weeks in the summer. don't plan on doing much except getting ds to work lol stuff my older hands can't do like trimming edges of lawn. got him to pull up all the maple tree seedlings that have spouted everywhere yesterday. told him better to do it in the sun after rain easier. owes me money.

    realized that with the new fence of the neighbours that just goes to the front of the house, I can plant some clematis there. I have one in the front that hasn't done well for years because it is just too hot in the front. too much sun. have to figure out how to move it since it is small but in a bunch of other plants. they built a new house new owners so old fence came down w all the vines etc on it. original fence only went to the back of the house. pots of lilies etc from the house down the street. need to figure things out. stuff needs moving too..my thornless blackberries never are sweet. I have all types here from very hot too much sun to lots of shade.

    really just have to protect everything from family ...kids are teens now so no more trampolines etc. time for moving things and a grownup garden.
