Verry, verry close to being finished…

The weather did its best to frustrate my garden renovations, but I’ve persevered, working my way through late frosts and storms…

I am so proud of our new rainwater barrel!  We painted a plastic barrel that I saved from the trash, trimmed the gutter to fit, hooked up a faucet and voila!  Last night’s storm filled it up (and over, as we haven’t added an overflow drain) and today I felt like a hippie-earth-mother as a watered the porch plants with Real Rain Water…

We’ve gotten a trailer-load of mulch, and got about half of it out before tonight’s storms.  We may be dodging the raindrops, but the plants are eagerly catching them…

And that’s just the edible garden…
