Once Ken dumped the first load of dirt, I shoveled compost in the middle and tried to mix it in a little. Ken brought the second load, threw more bricks across the fence, and we mixed all the dirt and compost together. Next, we used some Jungle Growth Vegetable and Flower dirt to plant Our Buy One Get One Free Vegetable Plants from Lowes in.
The best part about this garden is that we are not using our water to keep it watered. My fabulous handy husband has a pump that pumps water from the creek behind our house to water our vegetable garden. Talk about being green at the Daniels!
So far, we have tomato plants, zucchini, squash, okra, and giant sunflowers. We can’t wait to enjoy eating the vegetables of our labor – fried green tomatoes, fried squash, fried okra … you get the picture. Healthy, huh?
