I decided this year that I was going to embark on something that I had never done before...grow a garden! Not just your average flower garden, a vegetable garden! At first I thought this would never result in anything because I do not have the time at all, but somehow I was determined to make it work.So since this was my first veggie garden I didn't want to spend a ton of money just in case it didn't work out for me. I went to Lowes and bought some regular old cinder blocks (that are so ugly) haha and enough potting soil that I felt like could cover my entire yard....I made my garden 3x3 and poured all the soil in.
(*Tip: I should have put something over the grass so that it wouldn't grow up through the vegetables.) Butttt I didn't so moving on. I then went ahead and bought my plants (not seeds because I'm to impatient for that) and planted them far enough from each other. I made sure that I watered them daily esp when it didn't rain (because it has been wicked hot this summer!) and gave them plant food. As you can prob see in the picture I ended up adding another block to each side and and some more plants. My friend Megan brought over some squash and watermelon a little later. She said she thought they would prob die because they were so fragile but they are huge now! I'm not the best gardener, but I was pretty proud of what I did grow :) Enjoy! Thanks!
