Dennis Saves Our Garden

Thus, on Wednesday night, I came home and Dennis was in the garage with pvc pipe & heat lamps. A Man After My Own Heart…My Hero!!! (more…)

With the start of May and presumably warmer weather, Dennis & I built a new raised bed for our garden. A 3 foot by 12 foot addition would more than double the square footage of our space. I was psyched to get ‘er done.
