The Kid's Garden

This weekend, we started planting vegetables in the kids garden.

This is not where we intend to have a garden every year, but this is where the water is located! Right now, we only have water at the road, so we decided to use some of the flower bed for the vegetable and herb garden.

As it is, when we water our new pecan trees, we have to fill up a 15 gallon container and drive it to where they are planted!

Do you know how hard it is to pick up 15 gallons of water? Me either, but my sweet husband could tell you...IT IS HARD WORK!

Hopefully in the coming months, we will be able to run water lines out to the shed. Until then, I think this is the perfect place for the garden...wouldn't you say?
