Remember my cute little raised bed garden I showed ya a couple months ago? It looked something like this...
Well for the first time since we've lived in our house (which is going on seven years), we have rabbits. And you've already heard my rant about the squirrels...yeah they're not any better this year. So far we've caught only ONE sneaky squirrel and the rest taunt me every morning and evening as they eat my bird seed. Ugh. So between the rabbits and the squirrels, I'm kinda at my wits' end here. And of course to top it off, I've noticed my flowers slowly disappearing and random tomatoes on the ground in the garden. I'm not happy. So I've taken things into my own hands. Since this pregnant body is in NO WAY breakin' out a shovel in this insanely ridiculous hot weather, I decided to rig my own fence to (hopefully) keep those wascally wabbits away. This is it. I'm proud. And also mortified at the same time.
It doesn't look half-bad from this angle, but just you wait.
What--doesn't everyone have a random plastic tote being used as a fence post?
Close-up. Oh and I forgot--there's an upside down chair further on down holding up the other side. Nice.
But seriously, besides the temporary "supports," can't you see the potential of the cutest, quaintest little garden here? Aww...seriously. I have a thing for picket fences and cute gardens, and I think I may have one in the works here (if we ever get around to this project). I think I need a farm hand around my place to keep up with all the projects that pop into my head.
Here are some really cute gardens I've pinned that are so stinkin' adorable. Even if you have the blackest of thumbs, I'm sure you'd have to agree with me.
If we do tackle this project, I think I'll want to make way for another raised bed or two.
Adorable, right? Tell me I'm not the only one who can see past the ghetto-ness into the potential of a lovely little garden. I'm not crazy, right? (Or maybe I am for adding yet another thing on to the to-do list...ugh.)
Enjoy your weekend!
