Kristen's in charge of the Everett Makers Market and put on the recent block party we went to, and that was the day I decided it was time to get one for our dining room. Garrett's only request was that it should happen after our July 4th party and look fantastic when Thanksgiving rolls around. Kristen and her husband Matt came over Friday night, and installed it pre-planted for me. It's already great! When the work was done, we visited for a couple more hours, which was tons of fun.
I decided to do half plants and half herbs, and am looking forward to being able to just walk across the dining room for fresh herbs when I'm cooking. And it's just out of reach from the cats. I'm sure they hate it.
