Our garden!

Our newest family adventure is our garden. We figured that since God was so gracious with blessing us with a BIG backyard we would use part of it for a fruits and vegetables garden. :) Well Sam took our idea and ran with it... We now have 6 4x8 boxes and a very cute little 4x2 box. He also installed home made irrigation into all 7 boxes to make watering easier. I was a bit worried that we wouldn't be able to fill all of those boxes! But with the help of family and friends we did!! :) We have tomatoes, lettuce, a mystery plant (lol), white onion, green onion, squash, peas, green beans, yellow and green bell pepper, jaleopenos (per the request of Mr. & Mrs. Velazquez), corn, pumpkin, carrots, watermelon, cantelope, honeydew, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries. WHOHOOO!! I know!!
 Yesterday, Sam and his dad spent the day figuring out the how to fence in the area so that our adorable little Broxton will not help himself to our wonderful garden as we pleases. :) Once they were done with that it was planting time. We were so thankful to have friends and family willing to help. The Newmasters, Cunninghams and I began getting our plants into the ground. My mother-in-law Sandra got our beautiful Sunflower in the right spot and placed our Scarecrows. (Arielle and Sandra make us homemade Scarecrows, they are simply adorable)
 I am looking forward to spending sometime this summer in our garden. We are also planning to make our own baby food once little Makenna gets here. Our garden will be perfect for that as well. :)
the first box is in!

All but one box are in...

Fence is up, all boxes are in, soil and plants are in, and of course 
Sam's amazing irrigation system is up and running!

Broxton is enjoying the garden too! :)
