I have been wanting to do a garden for years, and we finally got around to building one in the backyard! I am hoping to grow some vegetables, herbs, and fruit. I know it is a work in progress, and have always heard the first year for a garden doesn’t always produce much, but I have to try. I don’t know much about it, so will be learning as I go along, and figure blogging about it is a great way to possibly help others with what did and didn’t work for us, as well as be able to go back and see what we should or shouldn’t do next year. This section may also include some of our backyard projects since it all goes along with the garden area. Since there isn’t a lot of change very often, I will post the garden updates every other Friday with photos of what we are currently growing, and any tips/tricks we have learned.

2016 Garden Update #4

Look at this, this is only one week after the last post I made. I didn’t realize how quickly herbs can grow! I will be using them much sooner than I thought in my kitchen and that is so exciting! Time to start researching how to dry and save the herbs now.

2016 Garden Update #1: We have dirt!

We spent hours in the backyard pulling the grass out of the garden area to prep for the dirt that was delivered. Our garden is slowly coming together!
