A garden we will grow, a garden we will grow....

bWe've lived in this house for five years.

And for five years, we've talked about putting in a vegetable garden.

Evidently, this is the year of action.

Fencing off our little veg patch.

Gardener Nathan pounding nails.

All mapped out and starting to dig.

My little hellper.

Thanks to all of hubby's hard work, the beds are now dug and ready for planting. We're going to try green beans, peas, carrots, parsnips, turnips, onions, broccoli, brussel sprouts, zucchini, jalapenos, sunflowers and some herbs. We'll plant pumpkins later in the year.
Wish us luck!

Glad to see your back! Welcome to the world of gardening, we have some raised beds for our veggies and lots of flower gardens. Have you considered a few chickens?!

Speaking of growing things...Nathan has sprouted up.
Looking forward to your real people garden posts.
