We are so thankful for our friend at church who helped dig up the backyard for our garden. We are also incredibly grateful for understanding landlords who let us dig up the backyard.
I took these pictures from our upstairs window, to help you get the scope of what we are getting ourselves in to. Now as a first time gardener, I'm a bit intimidated, but thankfully we have some awesome mentors to hold our hand through this process.
I would like to use this page to show the progress of our first garden and share the things that we learn. Living on two part-time salaries, has forced us to try new things to save our family money. I never would have tackled a garden this year if it wasn't for our awesome mentors (and very understanding landlords who have let us dig up the back yard.) They have encouraged us, shared tons of knowledge, and been patient with our lack there of. Up to this point, I would have considered myself to have a black thumb, so this will definitely be an adventure.
