Building and growing a garden

Jason built us a box garden and Em helped him! I've been wanting to grow a garden for a couple of years but with Jas being gone and with all the remodeling we've had going on we haven't been able to even think about a garden. This year we decided to do a raised box garden, hoping the dogs would stay out of it!! Also, I wanted something more manageable. The last time we did a garden it was huge and I would spend hours weeding it. Who has time for that!!! I can barely keep up as it is!!! Plus the soil was really rocky and crappy. Now we have good soil and good drainage. So, hopefully it will provide us with some yummy vegies!! I even did squash, even though I don't love it, Em does!! Most of it is growing well!! So I'm excited. And the best part is all 3 of us did it together and we haven't seen one weed so far!!!

We want to do that too! Not this year, but next. The soil here is, well, it is not soil. It is ALL rocks! We are going to make raised beds and put them on the west side of our house. We are excited for when it will happen. I hope your garden grows really well!

We did planter boxes this year. Every since we have been married Cody has tried to have a garden. We even had a rubbermaid box on our porch when we lived in the apartments. Cody has such a green thumb and our garden is doing great now that the neighbors are not flooding it all the time.
