We were excited to see there was already a raised garden in the yard when we were first looking at this house. Our neighbors warned us that the previous owners had not had luck growing anything but Hayden was not to be deterred! We had wanted to plant a garden at the other house, but knew the deer and raccoon friends from the woods would not let us join in on the harvest. So, after a lot of research- and a gift from my Grandpa Platten- we got started on planning and preparing for the garden. We thought this would be a great way to teach the kids, give us all an activity to work on together, and have healthy vegetables to eat. We aren’t really the most healthy vegetable eaters you know!
If you truly know Hayden, then you know that a new hobby consumes him. He studied, planned, and you probably saw the post with his nerdy spreadsheet. I love that he is like that because, if you truly know me, I AM NOT!!
We have made it through several frost threats and it is really starting to sprout some greenery. We can’t wait to see what will come out of it! And now we have two Gnomes, brought by Lucky the Leprechan, to keep watch over the garden!
