Digging In

We have finally completed the terraced veggie garden!
Now we just need some sunshine to show the plants which way to grow!
Justin and I already can't wait to eat (and share) the beans, tomatoes, green, yellow, orange and red peppers, watermelon, cucumbers and squash! Here's hoping that they all produce.

Next year we'll hopefully build stairs where that dirt pile in the foreground is. Depends on if we remember how much digging was required :)

dishes are DONE!

The dishwasher has been installed! Hurrah for no more hand-washing silverware.
Here's a sneak peak of how the kitchen is looking now. Still need some finishing touches including backsplash tile, paint and hardware but we are getting there!

Oh! And we finally cleared away all the debris from the deconstruction. Luckily we were able to give away all of the cabinets on craigslist so those don't hit the landfill. What we ended up throwing away was mostly subflooring, the old countertop and dry wall. The bag was as long as Justin's car!
