In January, I listed the things we hoped to accomplish outside in 2009.
-Plant a new garden in 2009 for veggies and herbs.
– Plant a rain garden along the garage. If we have it approved through the city, we get a free rain barrel, they pay us $4.00/square foot of landscaping and receive reduced water bills. No brainer.
– Paint or stain and seal the deck. First, we’ll have to choose a color.
– Mount flower boxes to the front of the house and deck. Possibly use the flower boxes as containers for the herbs and veggies.
– And, finally – the big kahoona…. add a porch to the front of the house. The home originally had a full-length front porch. I’d like to bring this back. This will be a few years off (or sooner, if Ryan’s feeling generous). A girl can dream.
