Building Our Veggie Garden
Last summer, we built our garden, and yes it took the whole summer! Now that we have a bigger yard, I want to grow more food. We took down an old willow tree that was damaged in a storm, and were left with a sunny spot. With a tiny bit of help from me and the kids, my husband built 8 raised garden beds, lined by a row of blue juniper trees for a barrier from the street.
We planted two apple trees, a plum tree, and a juneberry (service berry). When we moved, our new yard already had 2 full sized mulberry trees and a large raspberry patch. This summer, 2019, we are ready to start planting, but here is the transformation from last summer:
Before: the old willow tree
After: ready for planting summer 2019!
