When Duane and I started dating I was sorta homeless. I think all college kids feel that way! I have always lived in a house with a yard (I’m a lucky lucky girl) so when we go together I started planning how I could use his yard!
My dad was a farmer for years and we always had a huge garden! My mother would can food and we rarely ate anything that wasn’t home grown. (Aka my mom was super awesome).
I really wanted a garden of my own to use for just us two! Due to my job and horrendous travel schedule I was gone May-August the past 2 years. We were all set to plant it last year & have D take care of it when I was gone. Then he broke his leg. Whomp whomp no garden!
This year I was determined travel or not! (Manila for 2 weeks!) I was getting my veggies in the ground!
D my super handyman built me a wonderful garden.
He built me a box and even a sprinkler system so I don’t have to worry about watering!
We even had to build a fence to keep this little cutie off. He was SO SO interested in what we were doing.
See the dirty on his nose? Yeah he wouldn’t stop eating the dirty. What a weirdo.
It took is pretty much all day to complete with a few trips to Home Depot! I also got side tracked and got a few flowers for pots and the front yard.
I love my new garden and plan on sharing lots of new recipes with the fresh veggies we get from it this summer!
The herbs will be grown in separate pots! I can’t fit them in my garden right now. I also bought seeds for lettuce and spinach which I will have seedlings hopefully soon!
Look for more gardening tips & tricks coming soon. My goal is to make sure we don’t use chemicals!
I’m off for a run and hopefully a nice stretch. I got shots for travel yesterday and am achy!
