Got Your Garden Groove On?

Sniff…..aaah….do you smell it?  It’s gardening time!  Spring is in the air and it’s time to get movin’ in the garden.

We are definitely behind schedule due to our little girl showing up 6 weeks earlier than planned, but it’s never to late to start!

While my gang is busy getting things ready, I’m inside taking care of baby.  I cringe sometimes because I ache to be out there, but at this point it’s a bit too chilly for baby and I am still recovering myself.  Can you tell I don’t stand still too long?

Our beds took a beating with the winter we had last year, but here’s a snippet of what our garden looks like in the peak season.  You can read about it here.

Vertical planting is the way to go and we love Eliot Coleman’s methods!!

Now all we need to do is amend it with our compost, some manure, and then bring on the seed!  

So, you might be wondering about the location of our garden.  Yes, it’s in the front yard of our .25 acre city lot because even though our back yard is by far bigger it is highly shaded.  

We actually find that the neighbors make special trips just to walk down our street just to pass by our yard.  When we were putting the beds in some thought we were carving out the local university’s letters…um…no.  I decided to take my sister’s advice and share that we were creating a family plot.  Ha!

It creates fun times of interaction for sure!

Anyhoo, who can pass up enjoying all this garden bounty that you’ve labored over, is completely free of chemicals, and is organic in all aspects?Front Yard City Raised Beds Garden via www.prodigalpieces.com

    You just continue to take it easy while you can sweetheart! in no time at all you will be hard at work….I’d love to be able to get outside to weed my flower beds but we have been getting rain for days…so I am trying to keep busy inside.
    Can’t wait to see your garden this year!

    You’ve definitely got a green thumb. Your garden from last year looks amazing! We’re trying to grow veggies and it seems to be going better this year…so far. The plants are looking good. We also decided to build more raised beds in our backyard for more gardening space. We started working on it yesterday. I hope we can end up with a garden at least half as bountiful and lush as yours. Happy gardening! 🙂

I should have left this review MONTHS ago! I absolute love this lunch bag. I honestly carry this 5 days a week. It is the perfect size! Not only can you put your lunch in it, it can also hold your book. I enjoy reading at lunch, so I have all I need in one cute bag. Thank you so much Larissa!
