Gardening and Blogging Are On Hold

For a few days at least I won't be doing anything in the garden, except maybe some harvesting.  Nor will I be blogging.  I will be finishing up the kitchen remodel I started last summer. 

Got my new cabinets and countertops in yesterday and my brother and a friend will be coming out to give me a hand getting everything installed.  Last year I repaired and painted all the walls and installed new upper cabinets.  This year it's the lower cabinets and countertops, and hopefully the floors will be done before next year. 

Remodeling kitchens is a pain, they are the most used room in the house (unless you only have one bathroom), and taking a kitchen out of commission for very long leads to chaos.  Which is part of the reason i have been doing mine in small steps... the other part is that kitchen cabinets are crazy expensive!

So, hopefully when this is all over with I will have a few pictures to show off.  Until then, happy gardening everyone!


  1. Good for you and good luck. It feels so good to get big projects like this finished.

  2. We tore out our kitchen a few years ago and the next day found a water problem in the bathroom. The project changed from kitchen remodel to bathroom remodel. Thankfully we still had the upper cabinets on the wall and two bottom cabinets that weren't destroyed. The kitchen was like that for 2 years because we couldn't come up with the money to do the remodel. We also only have one bathroom which was real fun during the remodel. I guess it is true that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
