Look What We Found!

In the nice spring weather we decided to do a little yard work.

Reece was manning the weed whacker.

He stumbled upon some wooden beams,
which deserved further inspection from Maya and Mason.

To our surprise we found a garden bed.

 No, the drip system was not in place and it didn't have beets, carrots, and radishes growing in it already. But, it did have some GREAT soil. We turned some compost into it, added the drip lines, and planted our root veggies. They are already popping up!

You have to make the most of opportunities when they arise...old garden? New garden!

Get out!!! I wish all new houses came with hidden raised garden beds...

daisy said...

Are you kidding me? Wow! What a score! Enjoy! Good things are comin' your way, huh?

That is a great score. Hopefully it stops there and you don't find something really "interesting" like a human skull. This actually happened to someone in our old neighborhood and they had to move out for several weeks while the cops investigated. Ok...off topic, but this is what I think of when people "find" something at their new place.

Treasure hunt!!!

Let's hope we don't find a skull!!! Holly, I'm dieing to know whatever came of it. Where did it come from, whose was it, etc.

I wouldn't be surprised if we did find something else crazy. The first owner was nicknamed "crazy bob", I will be doing a post on it sometime.

Ooo, I want him to come weed whack at my house- I want to find raised beds. Seriously- what a great find! If only all the surprises of life were that pleasant.

I want to find a treasure like that on my property!!!!

Teri said...

Lucky! I would love to find something like that in my yard, but all we ever seem to uncover is rusty car parts and broken glass.

Enjoy your new garden :)
