Last weekend, Kenny and I started work on a project we’ve been looking forward to since we bought this house (and a project that helped me cross off one of my 101 goals). We love eating veggies, so planting our own garden seemed like the natural thing to do.
We bought all the material needed and got to work. It may not look like it from these pictures, but trust me: I got my own blood, sweat, and tears involved in this project!
She likes to dig:
And eat basil:
|Seriously, don’t let that puppy-dog face fool you!|
She also likes to sit on lettuce:
|I caught her just chilling on the lettuce one day.|
Bella also likes to stomp and walk on sweet peas and zucchini:
|This is from my new “office” adjacent to our garden. She walked over there just as I started writing this post.|
So there you have it, our adventures in gardening. We planted big tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, jalapenos, lettuce, mint, chives, sweet peas, basil, and zucchini, but I have absolutely no idea what will actually grow. Not only is it our first time trying to grow produce, but our lovely dog may get to the food before we do.
Do you have any tips on how to keep our pup away from the garden? I suggested one of those “invisible fences” just for the garden, but Kenny nixed that idea. (I was partially kidding about it. Partially.)
