Thanks to my dad and husband, my dream of having a garden this year has become a reality!
My dad brought over the materials for a raised garden bed and showed us how to put it together.
My husband and I don’t build things together often, so this was a lot of fun.
We did the “heavy lifting” during the little lady’s nap.
Once she woke up, she had a beautiful garden bed to plant whatever she wanted. (Or, rather, the plants we picked out at the hardware store.)
She was more interested in digging in the dirt than putting things in it.
But she loved carefully placing our homemade garden markers in the proper place.
They were really easy to make and a lot of fun!
We started off by going on a nature walk in our backyard in search of the perfect rocks.
We washed and dried them. Then painted them with acrylic paint. I used a sharpie to write on the rocks after the paint was dry. Finally, using a paint brush, or sponge, we applied a few layers of Mod Podge to seal it all in (and protect from the rain.)
Now I just hope we don’t have a late frost and we’ll be good!
What are you growing this year? Do you use garden markers?
