I made it there and, breaking the stare with my best Miss Piggy “Hmph!” I popped open the trunk in triumph.
Now I have four awesome raised vegetable beds in my backyard and the sight of them makes feel like belting out a powerful roar, despite the fact that after I built the frames all by myself, (the easy part), my husband (who expressed his pride over my handiness with a heartfelt exclamation of "Wow!") carried 24 forty-pound bags of dirt to the back of the property so I could fill them.
