Today we are working on two firsts. One first is that I am writing this post from my iPhone.
The other first is that we are growing a garden. Our very first garden full of all sorts of vegetable goodness.
We started with a simple garden bed we picked up at Home Depot. This garden bed gives us the option of adding on if it turns out we are expert gardeners. It was so simple to put together. Putting the whole garden together took about an hour and required no tools (unless scissors count as a tool). If you don’t like getting your hands dirty I would recommend a shovel ;).
In our garden we have three different kinds of peppers, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes and strawberries. The strawberries and two of the tomato plants will be going in pots.
We decided to add marigolds around the perimeter to keep the bunnies away. Rumor has it the smell does the trick!
Quinn helped me with every step and we have watered our garden every day. Quinn also asks if we can eat it yet every day. I think this is going to be a great learning experience for the both of us. I am so excited to eat our first vegetable from our garden!
The cost up front will be worth it when we are eating fresh vegetables from our backyard.
Any of you planting vegetable gardens this year? Any green thumbs out there with some tips?
