The Shrubbery

Chain Saw To Take Down The Evergreen

“First you must find… another shrubbery! Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must place it here, beside this shrubbery…”  What?!  We’re talking about shrubbery tonight on the blog so isn’t it a given that we whip out Monty Python quotes?!  Anyway…we owe you an update, or two, or three about the progress we’ve […]

Gardening For Dummies

Step 5: Plant Garden

When it comes to gardening, I really don’t know what I’m doing.  It’s pretty pathetic.  Hence today’s “Gardening For Dummies” post.  So for those of you who are gardening pros (or novices since that’s a step up from a gardening dummy like me), feel free to skip on over this post and return tomorrow for […]

Garden Hard 2: Raised Beds & An Updated Yard

Garden Hard 2

We are WAY overdue for updating you all on the yard progress we’ve been making the last couple of months…okay…more like in the last month (singular).  We have been yard monsters!  We’ve been working on the lawn, building new raised beds, planting the veggie garden and even building a new fence with a Goose gate […]

Garden Hard

Garden Hard

Occasionally, the Colb-ster has some pretty impeccable ideas for the blog.  Creativity really isn’t his strong suit so when he comes up with some shear creative brilliance, I usually capitalize on that.  In this case, we were discussing our gardening projects and suggested that I do a little blog series about our veggie garden throughout […]

Succa Please

New Plant On The Entry Shelf

Before I dive into today’s blog post I need to explain the title and the associated Jeanne-ism.  Jeanne is one of my co-workers, probably one of the loudest, and one of her top ten phrases is “succa-please”. Succa-Please Passive-aggressive behavior at its most eloquent Colby:  Let’s just take one more lap around the Dick’s Sporting […]

The Corn Squirrel

The Corn Squirrel & His Kingdom

While we’re getting back onto the DIY train and working on a few projects (and picking up our uber messy, post wedding, mess of a house), I thought I would share a little veggie tale.  And not that veggie tale…this one is about corn.  More specifically the corn in our garden and how it keeps […]

Firmly Planted

Planting Wedding Flowers

Bad blogger, bad blogger.  Back on Sunday I update you with a rustic, hand crafted, and virtually free garden trellis and never revealed to you the finished garden product.  For shame!  It must be all this invitation assembly that’s going on.  My brain appears to be fried…or out to lunch.  But anywho…lets get back to […]

Rustic Garden Trellis

Rustic Garden Trellis

Just about when I decided to start building the ark, the clouds parted and a yellow, glowing orb (more affectionately known as the sun) decided to show it’s face once again, gracing us with its presence.  In other words…it stopped raining and the sun came out to play this weekend.  Since our indoor projects could […]

Feel Free To Climb About The Trellis

Garden Trellis

It’s safe to say that our veggie garden has officially sprung and we are happy to announce that we will, in fact, have vegetables this year!  Last weekend we were taking a walk through the garden, occasionally weeding it (I had to wait a few weeks until I could tell for certain the difference between […]

Hosta La Vista Baby

Peony Bloom

Last Sunday was our day of rest.  No demo, no dust, no mess.  Well, no not really.  We did do a little insulation installation and sheet rock hanging.  But we had to take a bit of a fresh air break.  It was way too gorgeous outside not to spend a significant amount of time en […]

Mind Your Peas & Cukes

Planting The Seeds

Last weekend was absolutely GORE-geous (she says in her best Real Housewives accent) here in Maine.  It has proceeded to pour everyday since then to the point where I’m contemplating building an ark so we can ford the river that flows through our driveway.  Seriously…it’s a matter of time before Goose gets swept down the […]

Potting Green

Potting Bench

In the recent weeks I’ve alluded to this awesome thing that Colby has been building me.  Well hold on to your britches boys and girls because the awesome thing is about to be revealed.  It’s done, we think (there may be future tweakages as needed), and fully stocked.  Drum roll please……….joy to the world…….drum roll……….introducing […]

It’s Showtime

Garden House Display

While we’re diligently staining and polying our hallway floor like good little DIYers, let’s share one of our weekend activities.  We try to escape the house as much as possible.  Is it sad that these two homebodies literally have to tell ourselves to go out more?  For instance, this weekend I said, “Self…we have got […]

The Feather Bone Is Connected To The Wing Bone

Metal Garden Birds

A mystery package showed up to our house the other day.  And by the other day, I really mean a couple of weeks ago.  I’ve been a little busy lately and am a little behind the times.  But not like layering my socks and feathering my bangs kind of behind the times.  Time has just […]

Puttin’ It To Bed

Four Assembled Raised Beds

As we mentioned WAYYYYYY back here when we were writing up our New Year’s resolutions, we vowed to spend more time outside this summer.  Not only do I plan to hammock so hard this summer, but also tackle a few long, does-it-ever-end yardscaping to-do list.  And even though the temps dipped down to near freezing […]
