How I Plan My PNW Vegetable Garden

A Sneak Peek Into How I Plan My PNW Vegetable Garden! how I plan my edible veggie garden, what I planted, and resources for PNW gardeners. #gardening #PNWgarden #seattlegarden #urbanfarming #smallgarden #frontyardgarden #smallspacegarden #organicgardening

I have wanted to share this post every spring since I started our vegetable garden. But every year I hold back because I know the photos aren’t the prettiest. I finally got over that fear and decided it was time. Gardening is like a meditation for me and such a big part of what I enjoy doing on the weekends. I just had to share with you. Plus, I get asked a lot about our garden when I share it on Instagram Stories, so it was definitely time to share how I plan my PNW vegetable garden, what I planted, and resources for Pacific Northwest gardeners.

Ok, I know it might feel like our kitchen renovation is dragging on… that’s probably because it actually IS. It’s April now and we started back in August. So yeah, 9 months… my bff joked that I could have had a baby in this time and she’s not wrong. Trust me, the joke is not lost on us! Anyways, I wanted to share yet another progress report with you guys… and thank you for your encouragement, kind words, and following during this ridiculous remodel journey! You know that I only keep it real with you, so the fact that you’ve been so incredibly supportive through this whole ordeal means the world to both me and Sean.

When I watch this video, it really does feel like we’re in the home stretch. If there is one piece of this massive kitchen-shaped puzzle that has been missing, it’s the sink. After 6 months of washing dishes either with the hose (it is currently 22 degrees in Seattle) or in the bathtub… our new farmhouse sink is positively a dream.

I can’t even believe I’m writing this post, but here we are. Given last week’s kitchen update, you’d think I am totally over renovations! While I couldn’t even imagine adding another project to my plate, these types of things take a fair amount of planning. Also, I just so happen to be an obsessive planner. With all of that being said, this is the list of home renovation goals we hope to accomplish in 2019!

Not gonna lie, you guys. Editing this kitchen renovation progress report video was pretty hard for me. If you’ve followed the renovation on Instagram, you probably know some of the behind-the-scenes updates. I wanted to go ahead and share even more about what’s been doing on and (quite frankly) some of the drama we’ve been dealing with here on the blog. It was really important for me to show you guys both the good and the bad of renovating — and that everything isn’t always perfect, even in Blogland.

Our Kitchen Renovation: Progress Report #3 (Tile!!)

After last week’s kitchen renovation update about the cabinets, it’s time to share even more progress… we officially have a tile floor! For the most part during this renovation, Sean and I have been able to do the work either ourselves or in tandem with our contractor (more on him to come…). But tile is a totally different story. I feel like we could have handled a straightforward tile shape, like a subway. But I had to be fancy and choose the Chaine Homme from Fireclay Tile! So we brought in a tile master named Dan to install it. As you’ll see in the video, Dan is a trip.

Thanks to our kitchen remodel and the New Year, I have been on a tear going through our tiny bungalow and making changes to every room. Whether that means reorganizing our credenza, giving the bathroom a fresh coat of paint, or purging unwanted clothing, I’ve taken the past few weeks to make some major changes throughout our home. Our small bedroom is my latest project! I teamed up with Soraa Home to update our lighting, plus make a few more changes in the bedroom.
