Photo Story of Our New Garden

So today I want to share with you our newest family project. As many of you know my husband and I run a functional fitness (similar to Crossfit) gym out of our home. I will write more on that later, but today I want to tell y'all about our new love of gardening. 

My husband has wanted a garden for a VERY long time. Being military means that gardening can be particularly challenging, especially since we are renting and we live in the center of Fayetteville. So, we decided to do raised bed gardening instead. I'm going to share the pictures with you of what we did. 

We started with a trip to Lowes to get materials. William was SUPER helpful. 

Here are all of our supplies:

The start of the first planter:

The planter next to our pull-up bar, yes it is VERY tall.

Filling in the potting soil that we made ourselves:

William helped Brian plant all the transplants and seeds that we bought.

Here are the plants growing away!

So that is the photo story of our raised bed square foot garden. I will update y'all with pictures as it grows!
