I have 3 children. They are 2 years old and younger. I have no business adding anything else to my daily "To Do" list as I can barely keep my head above water as it is. But living where we do, I just could not help adding a "4th child" to our home.
Over the past few weekends, my husband has been building raised planter beds for me to have a vegetable garden. You're laughing I know, but our neighbors have a beautiful vegetable garden and my parents have just planted theirs (which my 2 year old LOVES picking strawberries), and I have vegetable garden envy.
Though my husband and I have never attempted this before, my dad very clearly told us, a "We live in the PERFECT place for a garden! All it needs is warm weather and good watering, and it will take care of itself."
So we built the beds.
And we finally planted them this weekend.
