From oxdriftgardener: "2020 had already been chosen last fall as the year for a complete makeover of our vegetable garden. It involved replacing older 1'high raised beds with 3' high beds and adding a deer fence. It certainly kept us well occupied through the peak of the Pandemic and material deliveries were challenging"

From SkyWalker1: "ince the pandemic, I made over 1000 cookies for healthcare professionals and friends. Two healthcare family members told me they were so busy treating patients, they didnít have the time to eat. When friends expressed depressing statement about the lockdown, I cheered them up by delivery some cookie"

From Katy_McBell: "My Grandma passed away in early March, just before lock down began. I was given her quilting racks upon which I made this blanket. It was so lovely to have the time to spend working at a craft which she enjoyed so much over the years. "

From vincicle: "We call this our "pond-demic project" :) which included the entire front yard landscaping, building the pond, installation of the deck and pergola, and the boardwalk. This was 100% DIY and a first for us. We have had so much fun with this project, and have learned a ton! "

From BlossomMom: "With a limited budget, some hand-me-down items & determination, I dug a hole & made a pond. Built a boggy-plant pond filter with a pot & plants. Added some ancient bricks & stones laying around the yard & made a patio/pond oasis from the pandemic in my wooded hillside backyard. "

From Sharplant: "Using plans found on the Web, my Sweetie & I created this Kitty Abode using leftover house paint & shingles. It features a front lanai, front & rear Parisian oilcloth flaps for easy access, & catnip-scented towels inside. Just the thing for the stylin' neighborhood ferals guarding our Garden!"

From Keyholer2020: "This is my conversion to a keyhole garden after discovering the concept a few months ago. I began composting in 2004 to address waste, but it took ALL my 4 X 8 raised bed space a few years ago! This solution combines both in one spot for me! I will plant in a few days after the soil settles."
