Victory Garden in Victory Rolls
When I was growing up my dad always had a garden growing in the back yard he composted; much to the dismay of the suburban neighbors. I don't know what it is about digging in the dirt and getting things to grow that I find so satisfying but for some reason I do.
My family up was up and helping with the victory garden on Sunday (it probably helped that our internet connection had and outage yesterday). Saturday I purchased a new rain barrel and compost bin through the district we live in. So I worked on installing them, this morning while my husband and oldest son made me some raised beds (happy mothers day) for planting in. So no plants going yet but we are well on our way we just need to fill the new beds up and well get some rain for the barrel and get that compost collected and decomposing. Well I will update with pictures when something is actually growing not much to show right now. I know many of you have probably started your gardens weeks ahead of us Midwesterners but well the winter just didn't wan't to leave us this year but I think we are finally in some safer territory. Oh and the victory rolls they stayed in the whole time shoveling and rooting in the dirt.
Happy Mothers day everyone...
