This post is for my mom.
She’s an avid Gardner and our little garden project does not compare to the bounty her gardens produce. But, I thought of her a lot, and my father too, as Matthew and I designed, built, and planted our garden. Credit goes to Matthew’s brother, Patrick, for his green thumb consulting during our project. Patrick, like my mom, is a master gardener and we have much to learn from both of them.
Here’s what we did to get started in 10 steps.
Steps 9 and 10: use my big truck to buy buy special garden dirt, place in planters, and buy plants (4 tomato plants, 2 pepper plants, a packet of beet seeds, basil, and greens – two of which are kale plants for our green smoothies).
That’s it. Our garden project in ten steps. May the sweat from our labor bear organic goodness.
