Until last year, MrLivingOurWay did all of the gardening. He was brought up helping his parents in their garden and he has to have everything just so. However, last year we embarked on a new gardening adventure and decided to plant in raised beds using the square foot method. We spent so much of his time when he was at home on the weekends mixing soil and putting beds together that I actually got the privilege of planting first. I chose to plant snow peas which I remembered my mom using to keep us out of her way while she was working in our garden growing up. I planted 29 square feet last year which was not quite one whole raised bed.
They were a hit. The kids were actually enjoying eating something green! Most of them didn't make it out of the garden, but that's ok, I was just happy they were enjoying something healthy.
Yesterday, MrLivingOurWay and the FindingOurWays got started on our garden. I unfortunately missed it due to having to make up time for my job due to being sick over part of the last week. They planted two whole raised beds full of snow peas.
In the coming days we will also be planting carrots, beets, radishes, lettuce and more. Here is a picture the girls helping me plant the garden last year.
