Working on the Garden

We spent this past weekend (Friday & Saturday) getting our garden area all set up. Because we have such a big slope in the back yard, we are building three retaining walls. We spent Friday, pulling weeds, tilling, picking rocks and a little digging. Then on Saturday we dug lots more, picked more rocks and started building walls and stairs. We ran out of cinder blocks and time on Saturday, but we are getting closer to being done. Needless to say, Keagan really enjoyed spending almost two whole days outside digging & playing.

By the way...in spite of what the pictures show, I really did do work in our garden. But I also had to spend time feeding and keeping Deker happy.

You guys are so awesome. We had so much fun helping you in the garden. It is looking amazing. We will start getting some seeds together. Guess what. I just set up a blog for mom and dad.

That is super cute that Keegan feeds and shares with Deker. That is going to be a wonderful garden. Send some of the fresh goodness our way!

You've inspired me to get pictures up of our garden that we started this year. I can't wait to see the finished product and to see all of the different veggies that are growing.
