Garden Attempts by Novices - Take 2

April 17, 2007 - 2:56 PM

Today we put in fencing, some for the second time. We realized after starting it yesterday that we were suppossed to bury it. Today we buried it. We also got to meet some new plot neighbors. Everyone is SO friendly out there (except if you step on their already prepared/planted soil)! What a great place to spend the summer!

Here are some photos of the spot...

Neighbors Land that has not been messed with yet.

This is what your lot looks like when you first get it, 10 x 50 in between two posts with neighbors directly on either side.

Working Cuties!

This is our lot and Leslie's & Amber's lot. Ours is on the right. The raised beds were our labors from yesterday. Although, every person I have met says they don't do raised beds, every book says to do them? Hmmm...

Working Cuties!

Digging the trench for the fencing.

More Working Cuties!

Ezekiel in background telling Miriam to stay off the beds. Even though no one there is doing the raised beds, I think for a visual effect/reminder for our kids, I am glad we are doing them. It helps them see/remember where to walk and not walk.

Sweats like his Mama

My hardest working guy! He stayed on task burying our fence so well. The hardest part for him is that he sweats like his mama and gets freckles like her too! :)!

    It looks like you're having a lot of fun out there!! Aaron had a small vegetable garden in our backyard last year, but it got trampled on by the dogs a lot, so we're trying to figure out an alternative for this year. Hope you keep having fun with it!!
