Waiting Waiting & Garden Planning

Haven’t heard any updates on the house this week. Seems like things are moving slower than I expected. Last we went out to see (last Sat) the house had been moved onto the foundation. The septic system was in, but other than that not much progress. I can’t wait until the house is actually put together and the roof is up. It will look a lot more like a house then! We are probably going to drive out this weekend to see if there has been any progress this week!

I have been working on getting some gardening plans on paper. I am thinking of having 3 main vegetable beds and then numerous other stand alone beds. Here’s what I am thinking
