Planting a Garden.

We are halfway through planting our garden. We were going to finish yesterday, but three days of rain has put it on hold. We are renting,and don't have a otn of room in the yard. But we did have a rock border around the AC units. So we went to home deopt and had a couple of pieces of wood cut. Then with a few pieces of wood from an old pallet, Andrew created our Garden boxes. Yeah! It does cost an arm and a leg to fill them with dirt. The kids had fun filling them up, and planting. They helped pick out all the plants at Lowes too.
red peppers
yellow pepers
romaine lettuce
We even planted some in our hanging baskets.Now we are just hoping they all will grow. We have already lost three lettuce plants to over eager gardeners (Eric and Ethan) And the tomatoe plant is constantly attacked by rock storms. So we'll see how it goes.
