Last Friday, my dad came over and helped me build a raised bed garden. This was their anniversary gift to us this year. I have to say, it is one of the best ideas for a gift that I have ever heard of!
We shopped for the wood and dirt, toiled in the sunshine to put it all together, placed it in it's spot and got the job done in about 2 hours. Amazing! I don't know where my father gets his stamina - I can hardly keep up with him.
So it was time to plant. I put in seed for stringless green beans, beets, carrots, and onions. I also planted 4" potted tomatoes (big boy and grape), lettuce, and green peppers. Everything you need for sauce and salad!
Sowing seed in May. It's a beautiful thing!
