So good to see more EarthBoxes! I absolutely love mine.

I love the beginnings of your pergola - can't wait to see it finished.

I'm glad you can find time to garden, your yard is lovely. I always have a hard time picturing yards in The Bronx. I always picture it as wall-to-wall buildings. Thanks for showing me some reality. ;>
