So my husband & I planted a garden a few weeks ago. I had been hearing all kinds of things about Raised Bed Gardening and I thought we should give it a try.
I thought I would know what I was doing since I had helped my mom in the past. Its funny though. When I was little, I hated it. Between the hot sun, digging, weeding, and snakes... But looking back, the memories are priceless. I learned so much from my mom. She and my Dad taught us hard work and discipline. That is something I hope I can pass down to my kids someday.
So Justin & I built the wooden frame together and planted our garden. We had no clue what we were doing. I guess it just takes doing some things yourself to really learn. I don't have the greenest thumb but after just two weeks, our plants are growing! I can't even tell you how excited I am!
We also planted Spinach, Snow Peas and Sugar Snap Peas...which are my favorite!
There's something just amazing about watching plants grow up from just a tiny seed. We sure do have an awesome Creator!
