A Bathroom Reno Break

June 2, 2010 at 12:24 pm Leave a comment

I could be soaking in my tub or enjoying a steam shower, but we got a tad bit distracted. We are experiencing an early spring in southern Ontario and after the crap-ola summer we had last year, we are trying to stay outside and enjoy as much of the sun and warm weather days as we can. We also do not have air conditioning, so it’s best to stay outside and enjoy the breeze anyway. That said, the bathroom renovation is really only just a drain pipe away… and maybe some towel racks.

Instead of finishing the bathroom, we put in a veggie garden. We are also building a climber for our daughter, but we’ll reveal more on that in a later post – I’d like to post it finished so that you can see that we do actually finish the projects that we start! The veggie garden measures 8 feet by 8 feet, and the centre-piece is a teepee structure that will, in time, be covered in broad beans and peas. We have also planted:

  • celeryA cucumber plant has emerged!
  • cherry tomatoes
  • pencil-pod beans
  • zucchini
  • swiss chard
  • double-yield cucumber
  • lemon cucumber

All of these are planted in the garden, but we also have a lettuce patch growing in an old wheelbarrow that was left on the property when we bought the house, and we have horseradish growing in a deep container, and various herbs are growing in my flower gardens and planters throughout the yard. I’ll be sure to post some more photos of the garden as the summer progresses. Hopefully, everything grows well! I planted quite a bit from seed!

 Happy gardening!
