Our Garden

I've always wanted to have a garden. You know the kind that you can actually eat from. We decided to clear a landscaped portion of our backyard and plant some fruit and veggies there. I studied and planned and PRAYED for the choices I had made. Brandon and I both wanted this to be a family affair, so, everyone got to help out. Here's hoping that all our efforts aren't in vain.

We are all getting our hands dirty. I LOVE Parker's face (above). Obviously, not everyone catching the vision.

Yay for you guys! That's one thing we are also excited for in the new house - room for a garden.

Keep us posted on what you plant, what does well/or does not, etc.

i noticed it at the last AD.
i have been really wanting to start one, but not enough research or effort has gone into it yet.
good luck.

Good for you Jess. You will be so happy you did. We just got done planting ours. You will be blessed for your efforts. :-)

Oops, I don't think we researched or prayed over what we planted. Maybe that's why half of it failed...Looks like we will be coming to your place for some yummy summer salads!
