Growing up, I loved going to my grandparents’ (the other ones) house and helping Grandpa in his garden. It was huge. Since then, I’ve “shopped” an old man’s garden in a nearby town. I love eating a tomato straight from the garden! Mac always had a garden. When Grandpa was alive, I hear it was huge. Even in Grandma’s last year at almost 100, she still had a garden and worked it herself!
In honor of Grandma and my love of gardens, I decided to start my own garden. My Uncle decided to build me some raised beds.
Using landscape timbers, he build a small little garden. I’ve already decided I’ll need more next year!
My nephew and I spent a Saturday morning planting. We’ve got tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, squash, zucchini, onions, peppers, and cantaloupe! I’m so eager to start harvesting from my little garden!
