Our Garden!

I’m so excited to finally have a yard to garden in! I have big plans for our yard. This year we won’t be able to have quite as big of a garden as I would like, but we’ve got a few little plants in the ground and plans to get ready for next spring!

Here is where I plan to build our raised beds.
I’m leaning towards using cinder blocks for the bed. 

Here is our persimmons tree. It had fruit on it pretty
well into the winter. I’m hoping it’ll liven up again soon.

Eventually I will clear this out and use this bed as well.
I’d like to try some hardy herbs in this spot.

This bed was cleared out and is home to our
little garden for this year. Next year I’d like to make this the
boys’ plot and let them pick what they’d like to grow.

Here’s Alex with our little garden!
We’ve got two tomato plants and four pots of leaf lettuce.
We got the plants from a local nursery: Deep Roots Nursery
which uses heirloom seeds and natural growing methods.

What’s going into your garden this year?
