Tagged by Leslie with a simple question: What would I do with $5,000? This is something I have actually been thinking about lately: I would pay to have someone build me a raised-bed garden to grow vegetables. Something like this. I'm not physically capable of doing it myself, and my family is too procrastinatory (is that a word?) to help me. So I would definitely take the opportunity to pay someone else to do it. Of course it probably wouldn't take the full $5,000, so the rest would go to charity. And If I had my "druthers", it would be for some local dog rescue organizations.
I'm just about ready to implement Plan B: buying a few of those big wooden half-barrels and just filling them up with soil and compost. But I still need someone to muscle them into the truck, and from there, out to the back yard. Oh, and also to move my compost box back there. And shovel some dirt for me. *sigh* That's why this is a fantasy meme, right?
