This year, my father went all out with his attempt to grow fresh produce. He watched a few HGTV programs on gardening, searched a little bit on the internet, & jumped in head first into his first real garden. Don't get me wrong, the itsy bitsy peppers that came off his "bucket" plants last year were delicious, but I surely wouldn't have called it a garden.

The boards are up, the soil is prepared, & all the seeds have been planted. We weren't exactly sure what we wanted or needed, so in the small space there is a little bit of everything - literally. Tomatoes, carrots, peas, squash, onions, radishes, green beans, broccoli, etc. Anything we would ever need - that's if, it all decides to grow! I'm thinking that perhaps if it all works out for my father this year, we might follow in his steps next year. I see a nice corner of our yard that just might love to be the home of some delicious treats.

The best part of the garden is the fabulous soil used. All the soil was taken from a wonderful place called, First Avenue. I promise you, that place will always be apart of our lives, no matter what.

Since we don't have a house, and didn't want 2048394 pots on our balcony, my husband and his dad built us a box, like what your grandpa has. Well, they were growing awesome, especially our tomatoes.. and then.. we got spider mites and aphids and the are just draining the life from them all ):
