    With the weather being extremely uncooperative in the Midwest lately, I’ve had to take some major breaks from my garden bed project and move inside. You can’t exactly adhere exterior stone in the rain, nor do I want to do it with 50mph winds. I’ll just move right on inside and wait that all out!
