Spring Fever- Gardening Modern Homemakers Style
I’ve never been a huge fan of the outdoors… but something happened this Spring. The gardening bug hit me. I’ve dabbled with veggies on and off over the last decade but never with much success. But this year I decided that I’m going to be a fabulous gardener… SO THERE!!!
A couple of months ago I made a big mess in my kitchen and started seeds indoors. Check out my brother’s video here if you want more details on how to start seeds indoors. I’ve been reading everything I can and watching way more YouTube videos than I want to admit to.
Because of this newfound love of plants I’ve been spending countless hours outside. Which means I’ve been forced to stare at my messy backyard day after day after day.
So I decided to make some big changes. We finally finished our “classy” horse fence. Literally this project took us two years of off and on labor. You can see the older 2×4’s are a different color, and then we stopped using wood altogether and switched to metal posts. For the record metal posts are soooo much faster than digging holes if you’re thinking about affordable DIY fencing I recommend that all the way.
Having this horse fence up has been life-changing. We can finally go outside without having to worry about kids running into the street. Or a big mean dog digging up my apple trees. Yes. That happened… TWICE!
The fence being up changed everything. It led to me clearing out all the garbage and reupholstering the ugly outdoor cushions. Click here if you want to see my DIY Outdoor Cushions. I’m now officially in love with the looks of my yard.
I keep planting more stuff every day. But for now I’m getting lots of greens. What are you going to grow this year?
