As you may have guessed, I have a new vegetable garden…. albeit not a big one but I have one nonetheless lol! (It’s still a little bit messy because of digging and the soil that got on the grass around it but I still wanted to share the picture)
AND my lilacs are starting to bloom! They are my absolute favourite! What an awesome smell!
Yesterday Dillon helped me dig out a new garden for the vegetables I want to grow. Last year we tried to grow in some sort of felt raised garden bags. While it wasn’t too bad, they caused problems in the winter, holding snow up against the wall of the garage/shop and when it started to melt… guess where it went? Yep… in the garage.
This year I decided I wanted an actual garden instead of trying to find different ways to do raised gardens. Chris and I went out into the yard and decided where we wanted to put it and I called in the big guns… aka Dillon and his youthful strength lol… and we dug up the grass where the garden was going to be.
Here are a couple of pictures of the process. It took quite a few wheel barrow trips to get rid of the grass we dug up lol!
Once Dillon did the heavy work I mixed in some better soil and triple mix and was able to start planting!!!
This year we are growing tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, celery, red onions and two kinds of lettuce! Hopefully I can keep them alive and thriving this summer so we can enjoy them. I think it will be so awesome to grow something my granddaughter can eat!!!
