I may not be a certified farmer by the time this is over, but I’m going to attempt to grow a vegetable or two. And, I’m actually building the raised bed for my little garden.

Lowe’s asked me to try one of the Craftsy videos now available on their site, and if this is successful, it should be a true testament to just how easy-to-understand the instructions really are. Want to try it with me? There are a couple of free courses (including the garden) available now.
Right now, I’m in the planning phase of gathering my supplies and deciding what to plant. I would be thrilled to be able to make a little salad from my efforts. I’ve also been researching about how to keep our deer friends from eating it. I’m fine with planting marigolds, but I draw the line at dirty socks or spreading “predator urine” as suggested by a couple of articles I’ve read. . .
