This last Christmas, Billy built me a second raised garden box for the back yard! This past weekend we finally got it ready to plant some seeds in. The boys all worked together to gopher proof the bottom and then fill it with dirt. Now all I need to do is buy some nice topsoil to finish it off. Our first garden box is still doing well, since winter was so mild, the cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen again and the bell peppers grew all winter long. We even got one yummy Kabocha squash mid winter that we baked up and ate with spaghetti one night.
It is so fun and nice to finally have a garden after the last couple of years just talking about it. I'm loving our functional back yard :)
