We Have a Garden!

Monday, April 15, 2013

In between sporting events, Mr. & I were able to build a raised vegetable garden over the weekend.  Everything has been planted and marked and we are so excited to watch it grow!

In order to ensure that the bed receives 6 hours of full sun, we had to do some rearranging.  Not easy if you have cracked ribs (soccer injury).  We moved our potting bench to the right side of the gate and which gave us a 4 x 12 space - perfect for us.

This is what it looks like now.  I'll be back tomorrow with the details.  


  1. YAY! we tilled ours.... ok i say "we" meaning my husband tilled while the kids and i were outside, too.... this weekend and next weekend we build the raised bed! again, i say we but i will be at work so chris and my parents are putting that up. ;) either way, super excited to have one!

  2. Yeah! Top of my list is to fix my broken beds. I can't wait to watch this grow....what are you growing?

  3. So envious, my potting bench is getting snowed on today! I love the manageable size and your pretty stone path, too!

  4. We started our raised bed garden a couple of years back - and yes, it does take up precious space - but its so worth it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Also, love your potting bench. would love to incorporate one in our yard at some point. Thanks for sharing, liz

  5. I'm envious as well. Ugh! So wonderful. I am afraid I have no hope for that. Excited to see what you are growing. And LOVED your post from Friday. Great features. And really love that black and white outfit. Happy Monday, my dear!

  6. Very cool Rene! I'm excited to see it grow too :)
