Lets start from the beginning….
Steven has had this plan to build a vegetable garden in our yard for years. Due to us having dogs (before they passed away) we didn’t think it would work out *cuz HELLO, they’d eat them when we weren’t looking lol*. Then this past summer Steven’s grandmother passed away, and she was an advid gardener, so I think between that and not having the dogs anymore, that really made him put his plans into action!!
And my husband goes big or goes home, people. Let me tell you! He saw this picture of a raised vegetable garden on Facebook and he wanted to build it. I’m the wife that says “Sure honey, anything you want”, knowing full well he’s absolutely nuts!
But anyway, a few weekends back, he woke up and went to Home Depot to get the supplies. TWOOOO hours later, he arrived home with a car full of wood. I helped him hold the wood while he measured and cut it. Then I helped him put it together. We were trucking along, until the power drill battery started to die out. By then it was like 4:00pm…. can we say DONE! Dinner and a family movie night happened. So did going to bed early!
Then it was Daylight Savings Time day, and it made us miss church (a TOTAL bummer!). We got up, he ran to Home Depot again because we were short a little bit of wood and he wanted to stock up on more supplies, just in case. We were only there for an hour this time, haha! Then it started to rain. But we stayed the course and built what we could, before being too exhausted to do any more. We came in, I made dinner, we ate as a family, then we all played a board game before having another family movie night. Went to bed a little later than we should of, but I’m the cool mom like that!
Once we had another free weekend, not caring that it was raining on and off all day, him and I went back out there to work on it some more. We put up all the chicken wire, which is way more of a pain in the ass than you’d think. But I kept saying to myself it’s gonna be suppppper sweet once there are veggies growing in it!
Then the last weekend in March, he finished the project. It actually looks pretty awesome! I’m glad he decided to go ahead with it.
Okay, so it’s been a little bit since the garden was assembled….. but it was time to plant our veggies two weekends ago. We drove all the way out to our favorite garden store, got everything we wanted, drove all the way back home and Steven went right back out there and planted them all.
Excuse the bags of dirt in the middle….
Can’t wait to eat all the veggies! It’s gonna be awesome!!!
