Once the beds were prepped and ready to go, we were ready to plant. This year, we planted most of our veggies from seed! The tomatoes, broccoli, and basil we started from plants, but the carrots, peas, green beans, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, and cantaloupe all from seed. We are anxious to see how everything does! The kids really got into the planting! It is fun to watch them...they have loved this whole process. What kid wouldn't love to play in the dirt and the water? Now, from that list of items planted, let me say that I am the only one who will eat everything! the neighbors will be on the receiving end of many free home grown items!
hoist it over the fence. Glad the neighbors were not out, because I am sure it was quite a comical sight! But after a short eternity we got it over and it sits in front of our gate waiting for some pretty vine to grow up it and be beautiful!
After the veggie garden and the arbor, Josh redid the front flower bed for me. Of course I did not like what was planted there when we bought the house and of course we riped it all out, only to start all over! He built a little retaining wall for me and filled it with the same good dirt we put in the veggie garden. Next, the garden fairy (aka. my mom) brought us a ton of plants from her and her neighbor's gardens. It is now so pretty and everything is growing and filling in!
