My husband has completed our garden now. So, I thought I would share with you the steps he took to get it that way. In a previous post, I showed you the materials and soils he would be using. Now, here is the plan in action!
First, he built the frame.
Then, he measured out the size of the frame onto the ground and edged that area.
Next, he removed the grass inside the edged area.
Now, you can see that all of the grass has been removed. Oops! He almost nicked our TV cable. That was a close call.
It looks like we're digging a grave or something! Now, the frame has been put in place. He had to level it out (because he wanted it perfect).
While they were waiting to be planted, he filled the frame with soil and all the conditioners etc. that was needed.
Finally, the vegetables were planted, making sure to leave plenty of room around them for growth.
He added a little seven dust to keep the bugs out too.
Here is what we planted:
Hot Banana Pepper
This should be plenty for us! We made sure to place the garden in a very sunny spot and bought a new hose to reach it so we could keep it watered easily. It's very convenient to get to since it's right off our back deck!
And do you want to know what our dog, Max, did the whole time this garden was being built?
I'll be sure to keep you posted when we start to see results from our first crop!
Thanks for stopping by!
