Our First Garden



This weekend, some good friends of ours helped us plant our first garden. 

First, the guys dug up the grass for our plot.

.
While they did this, Little Man snacked on some Ritz Crackers around the garden box my husband built.


When the plot was ready, they leveled the box and filled it up with soil and composted manure. Then we started planting. 


Laura showed Buddy how to plant “baby” seeds.


I made temporary garden markers out of Home Depot paint sticks and a Sharpie until I can come up with something cuter. I would love to buy a metal stamping kit to make garden spoons like these.


When we were finished planting, we gave it a nice light watering. 


I can’t wait to see the first signs of growth! Here is what we planted…

Herbs
Parsley
Mint
Dill
Lemon Basil
Italian Basil
Cilantro
Chamomile

Vegetables
Tomatoes
Cucumbers
Okra
Carrots
Squash
Zucchini
Eggplant
Peppers

I want to buy some seeds to plant Baby Lima Beans (Butter Beans), Cherry Tomatoes, and Calendula flowers to make salve.

Are you planting a garden this year? Do you have any gardening tips for us?

Always, 

Amanda
