Raised-bed update

Pardon my french, but holy shit it is so SO so nice outside today!!!! Although I have a robot neck, I am going to go outside any way and dig some things. It's so warm in my house- I turned off the furnace system completely!

On the bright side, soon I will have raised-bed gardens that look like this!!!:

This is a picture of Meg's garden over at growandresist. This is her picture, her garden, not mine! I am posting this picture, giving her full credit, because it is an incredibly awesome idea and I have decided to use cinder blocks for my raised-bed gardens too!

I have 3 pallets of cinder blocks coming today (225 block total). Each block is 7x7x16, so I will need a total of 208 blocks total for 4 raised-beds that are 4'x14"x12'. WoohoooooO! Mike will probably be delighted to come home and see 225 cinder blocks on our driveway. I know I would be :) I'm going to try to get them placed before he comes home. Doesn't that sound like a good thing to do with a neck injury?

We'll see what the doctor says first, I suppose. Off to get checked out! I'll posted some updates once the massive delivery gets here! 


  1. ooh, I am so excited to see how this turns out!
    I have had stiff neck before. Massage helps of course and you might also try icing it. I'm sure moving 225 cinder blocks will not help your neck - but it will be a fun project! =)

  2. Hahaha! Abort mission! Further neck injury imminent!
