Two Years and One Garden Later

I have wanted to start a garden for the past two years...last year I was gung ho and then a few remarks diverted my motivation and made me scared I would kill everything, plus being preggo didn't help either! So this year I said screw everyone and if I kill all the vegetables at least I tried. I read some books, talk to people at garden centers and convinced Mark this would be a good idea! I have to say so far we have a success. We followed Square Foot Gardening and it has been perfect for our small litle vegetable garden.  We are hoping to have veggies all summer :)

Mark dug out a corner, built my boxes and made it look pretty!

After about a month of half of using some starther plants. We have various types of lettuce and broccoli/cauliflower in this one. We also have peppers, cucumbers, herbs, onions, beans, and  am planting some tomatos soon.
Our first "head" of lettuce...we were excited!


  1. I'm so jealous!! Your garden looks amazing! I, too, usually kill my plants but I'm hoping with better soil at the new place, it'll be easier. :)

  2. SO CUTE!!! Your doing great and the garden is so cute.
