Getting Ready For Spring

This year we have decided to try something new! A Garden:) Not your average garden but a garden that will allow you to grow a lot in a very small space. It is called Gardening by the Square Foot. With the cost of fresh veggies and the amount of chemicals they put into our produce we knew it would be a huge benefit to try it. Daddio is very excited to start this new adventure and got a head start of building the boxes for it. He even had a little help!

We will have about 5-6 of these which hold 16 squares of different plants. And one extra smaller one that will be just for the Princess for flowers.

And we will fill them with the compost that we will make and store in this along with some soil and peat moss.

My princess covered in dirt and still beautiful.

If you interested go and check out Square foot Gardening. (google it tons of resources) It is a great way to grow veggies in small spaces. Great family time too. Bonus!
