Gardening: building mode ON

My boyfriend is leaving on thursday night for New York and will be back only on sunday night. That will be a long weekend alone with much stuff to do! I want to do a garden this summer (it was a project when we bought the house....4 years ago) so I might start it this weekend if it's not too cold. See, our backyard is not really "growing things" friendly. It's a big pile of sand, like the whole village actually. St-Lambert-de-Lauzon is a huge sand pit! So I have a lot of work to do before being able to grow anything in there. Also, we're surrounded by the forest so I will have to secure it if I don't want to feed the little ones more than myself. Now I have to plan what I want before getting started and there's SO MANY possibilities that I absolutely don't what I want!

This is a great idea to work in your small garden without crashing everything.

This one on top of the chicken coop is really a good idea to save space. But my backyard is large enough to have them both without pilling.

This one is really cute but I think that I will need a fence higher that that.

This is closer to what I need (sorry for the bad quality picture...)

Ooooooooh! This could be cuter with a bright color painting but that's a neat and cheap idea! And we can have a ton of those pallets at my boyfriend's job. I think I found exactly what I will do.

(I need to find cute dividers...imagine one you like here. By the way, as you can see, my blog is still a work in progress)
