My new garden

Whole gardenSnap peas

My wonderful husband built me this raised garden last week, and today my father in law used his truck to pick up the dirt and peat moss to fill it. My Mom usually had a large garden when I was living at home, and I am so excited to try my hand at it. The sugar snap peas are only a little over a week old, and they are huge! I think I’m going to get a small trellis and lean them against the wall so that they can climb, since the pole in the middle isn’t doing much for them.

I hope everything grows, it will be nice to be able to just pick a salad for lunch 🙂 The onions are there by mistake – my son thinks that they are toys, and must have slipped a few into the potting soil when I was planting the snap peas a few weeks ago. When I opened the bag today there were two thriving onion plants poking through the soil. I’m hoping nothing important ended up in there!
