Backyard Additions

This past Sunday was a great day to work in the backyard.  Mary Ann and I have been discussing adding two more container gardens for quite some time.  About a month ago I got wood to build them, but hadn't made much progress beyond that.  So Sunday morning I got up early and decided that it was the day.  I coaxed Maple into running upstairs and waking up Mary Ann, although it doesn't take much coaxing.  Maple loooooooves her so much.  After a little coffee Mary Ann was ready to help.  After the containers were put in place we made a trip for dirt and planted some broccoli and brussel sprouts.  These are Mary Ann's favorites so I thought since she helped these should be the first planted.  So far Maple has only pulled one of the plants out and chewed on it.  In fact, as I am writing this now all I can think about is the fact that she is outside unsupervised and I haven't checked on her lately. Wyatt gave up on supervising her a long time ago. I better run...
