Now hopefully Oregon will know it's summer and start acting more like it!!

My parents and husband built be a raised bed for my birthday :)

My parents put the wood together and Brian and I planted these little guys (in the pouring rain) about a month ago.

Here's what it's looking like today. They've been craving some sun so hopefully that will help today!
