Gardening Enrichment

I keep track of my gardening budgets and financing. Gardening has yet to pay me back for everything I have put into it, at least financially. What gardening gives back to me, not just in produce is natural spirituality, education, and exercise. These benefits cannot be counted in dollar and cents.

This spring I was in amazement in some of the plants that came back to life. I struggled last year to grow mint in the ground or container. This year there are small sprouts coming up in several spots in the garden. It is a pleasant surprise to have some plants reviving after the cold winter since I have been late in my spring plantings due to the new rush on our bathroom renovation.

We are changing all of our beds this year for better placement and durability. The most original wood we used has rotted away.

This is the first year that we added trees: plum and a peach tree. Plus added to our rhubarb and asparagus beds.

Bathroom Remodel

It’s been a busy couple of months. Work and home projects have collided into a no free time type of situation. The bathroom remodel has picked up new steam with an upcoming appraisal. Last time we left off the bathroom was a hole in the ground. Since then, new plumbing and electrical has been laid, and the holes filled in. Studs have gone up, and drywall is being added. The bathroom remodel required us to move some walls around, so we added a closet and laundry room remodel to our list of projects.

What I love about tackling my home improvement projects myself I always learn new skills and improve on old ones. My drywall skills have vastly improved from my last remodel.
