Square Foot Garden

After talking about creating a square foot garden for the last three years, we finally decided to complete the process this year.  We spent several hours planning, shopping and preparing for the project on Saturday and then got down to business today.  This resulted in six or so hours outside preparing the land, building the frame, and then planting.  We were only able to plant some of the veggies today because we aren't quite out of the frost time frame yet.  The spinach, carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, corn (might be a bit early), and bush beans are in the ground.  We'll add in the cilantro, peppers, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, watermelon, potatoes, pumpkins, etc. in a few weeks. 

All in all, it was a very cool project.  Hailey loved working in the garden and planting some of her own flowers and E was big help with the excavation process.  There is nothing like a much needed shower after working outside in the dirt all day long!
