Our little garden, part 1
Alex has been very interested in plants lately and I have always dreamed of eating fresh vegetables picked from my very own garden. Last month I asked my father to build me a 4'x4'x 6" box so that I could make a little garden and he not only made one for me he came and helped stake it into the ground. About that time I was reading America's Cheapest Family and they happened to mention Square Foot Gardening (SFG). SFG is based on 4'x'4 boxes for gardening so I thought it would be perfect. I got the book for the library and have been following their advice on how to set up a garden. Today Alex and I went out and planted our first seeds. The weather has been great lately and I think that we will be okay as long as we don't have another cold spell (if we do I'll cover it in plastic and hope for the best. I hope to be able to show pictures of the garden as things start to grow.
