There's No Place Like Home

 So... we're in the middle of a renovation of our house and living with our YD and family.  It's almost done, but not yet.  Here are some pics of our house in progress.


This is what our looked like when we first bought it.

This is what it looked like when we started work.


This is what it looks like now.

No after picture, yet.  We'll have to do some landscaping.  Can't wait.

Here's a picture of it with lights for Christmas.

2020 Victory Garden

Not really a "Victory Garden" -- just the beginning of my herb garden.  I have wanted to have my own fresh herbs for a while now -- I tried planting mint in the front yard -- it didn't work.  I have purchased numerous rosemary plants which have either died or been accidentally killed. I have had some basil plants that turned out okay.  So, anyway, I decided to get an herb growing kit on Amazon "Herbs in the Burbs."

 





 
It's a super cute box with all the necessary equipment -- however, a waste of money.  But I thought it would be a good way to start the plants -- I could have done it for much less money by buying starter plants at Home Depot ... but here are the plants that have sprouted:

cilantro,

parsley, and

basil ..

The rosemary and thyme didn't sprout so I bought a couple of small plants from Home Depot yesterday.  I also got a window box in which to plant all the herbs.  I plan to transfer the plants later today.
