I had mentioned I was thinking of even getting a picnic table to put out there. Well guess what, I was at a friends house this weekend and she just happens to have an extra picnic table stored away that she didn't even realize she had! So now I have me a picnic table. It's the kind that the seats aren't attached to it, like I like, too! Yay
It's just your standard redwood picnic table, sort of like this.
(Just an example, this isn't my friends table)
I like the seats being unattached in case you want to use chairs instead or if you want to use the table as a serving table and just completely remove the seats all together.
I was thinking about painting it white like this. I also am thinking about painting my railings white like these are and leaving the wood flooring the natural color. I just love this look. So clean and beachy.
Too bad I don't have that same view!
And I was thinking about putting a hole in the middle if the table and attaching an umbrella to it like this.
Besides the lounge chairs not working and having to take them back, I also have some more very bad news.
Remember my Christmas tree I planted? It died. :( I'm so sad. I will just use my artificial tree next year that I have stored out in my shed. It's only a tiny one, like maybe 3 feet tall.
More sad news, my peach tree died. I dug up both the Christmas tree and peach tree. So sad.
Hopefully things will start looking up soon. My garden is growing great! My tomato plants are so big they have fallen over. I'm going to my dads farm tomorrow to get a bunch of tomato stakes to stick in the ground so I can tie them up so they aren't all over the ground anymore. Everything is growing nice and lush in my garden, one sunflower plant and one pepper plant aren't doing well, but that is it. I think that's great for my first garden!
Oh and my cucumber plant is so adorable. I put a little wire holder around it so it can grow up it. The little tiny vines are growing out from it and wrapping itself around the wire holder. It looks like arms reaching up to it and holding on. I had no idea cucumber plants did that! I thought I was going to have to tie it up like you do tomatoes, but it sort of knows how to hold itself up. I love gardening :)
