spring cleaning

Sunday moring was clear so I suggested to Hubby that we should put together the shelves for the shed, instead of just letting them sit, taking up space in the garage.  I got the dear in the headlights look as I could see the wheels turning, trying to find a way to get out of it.  I. don’t. think. so.

Let me just say we put up this shed about two years ago and up intil now everyting has been either stacked on the floor or leaning up against the wall.  First we pulled everything out of the shed.  This isn’t everything, doesn’t show the lawn mower, studded tires, kids’ ride on toys and bikes, etc.

Then we put up the shelves, with the help of the kids.  I was quite pleased at how they turned out.  They fit almost all the way across the back of the shed and by raising the bottom shelf on the right we can park the mower right under the shelf so it takes up less floor space.

After we reloaded the shed, I started looking at the garden beds.  They needed some serious work.  Daughter helped pull weeds, hubby used the fork and loosened up the soil and I broke up the clods and did the finish work.  We were able to prep all but one.  We were thrilled to see hundreds of worms in each of the raised beds, big fat juicy worms.  The ducks were especially happy, the kids were catching the worms and feeding them.   Here is hubby holding one of them:

The kids and I did some planting on Monday.  Peas, summer squash, patty pans, round zucchini, lettuce, carrots, perennial flowers, broccoli; we’ll be putting out some tomato seedling in a couple of weeks and who know what else we’ll end up planting, this is not a planned out garden this year.
