Our Garden

We had been talking about planting a garden for a while, and we finally have one!

Several weeks ago, Matt surprised me when he came home from Lowe's with a bunch of vegetable plants to get us started with our garden. Because the weather outside was still so unpredictable, we kept the plants inside mostly, but when we were home (and knew it wasn't going to downpour in five minutes..), we'd leave them outside so they could actually see sunlight. haha.

Two weekends ago, Matt got to work, measured out where the garden would be, and started tilling up the ground!

After tilling everything, Matt stayed out late one night, in the dark, cutting out the boards to line the garden.

In the before pictures above, you only see one garden.
Well, we later decided to add a second, smaller one right beside it.

On Saturday, we spent the afternoon planting all of our vegetables and fruits, and even made a trip to Lowe's for a couple more!

Here's the finished product!

And now, we wait. Can't wait until all of our varieties of peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, squash and watermelons all grow!!
