Finally! This spring we were able to build our first raised bed garden...something I've always wanted to do - grow our own vegetables. Thanks to my wonderful husband and dad for building it! It has been super-fun for the girls, too! Elisea LOVES watering it as Julia tries to transfer all the dirt OUT of it! We can't wait to get our first veggies!
Getting the ground ready.
Making sure it's level:)
We used 2x10 size pre-treated lumber.
Side posts to give it some stability.
Adding the top piece of wood.
Aaron created this wedge piece to go on the sides - an extra support.
My wonderful husband also went and filled his truck with topsoil and mushroom compost to fill our raised bed!
One month later, they are growing for sure! Girls hard at work:)
Squash and Zucchini - this picture was taken last week, and they are already almost twice this size now!
LOVE her little ringlets! I could just eat her up!
Time for play:)
So thankful for the daily blessings of life and so excited about our growing vegetables!
