Brooke here. I’m going to do this post out of order, as I need to find some older photos. This is the post about the second attempt at building a rosemary hedge.
Brooke here. Earlier this spring, I wanted to build low-cost elevated strawberry planters. This is how I failed.
Brooke here. In fact…*adjusts crocheted cardigan* kindly avauntular Brooke here, to give you a little bit of advice about caring for your new adopted dog.
Brooke here. Time for yet another Disasterhouse blog reboot. I’m paying Real American Dollars to keep the invasive ads off the site, so that’ll help me stick to a posting schedule. If they force me to pay them my dollars I will fill them so full of words they will choke…
