Summer Blog Challenge- Day 5, My Goals This Month

My biggest goal for this month is to get my raised garden bed built and planted.  This will be my first summer attempting this.  I have longed to have a garden of my own for years, but usually didn't have the space for a decent one. At past places I have lived, I have just had a small patio so I would try some potted tomatoes or pepper plants.  This year we have some yard space and the go-ahead from our landlord to start a raised garden bed.   We just moved into our new home yesterday, so our plan is to get the bed frame built this Wednesday when my husband is off from work.
I already have 2 types of heirloom tomatoes to plant and a Big Boy tomato plant. I am also hoping to grow some peppers, and possibly zucchini and cucumbers.  I potted some basil and parsley, and they are both doing really well.

I am hoping to get the first 4 months of my daughter's baby book scrapbooked before the end of the month as well.  I am already kind of disappointed with myself for getting this behind on it.  I had high hopes that I would be updating it weekly, not missing or forgetting one detail or milestone. Once we get settled in this week, I plan on setting myself up a space in the spare bedroom to spread out my scrapbooking supplies and get creative. ;)

Oh, and I also hope to be unpacked and completely settled into our new house before the end of June, but I would REALLY like to see that happen by the end of this week.  Wish me luck!
