Fall Garden Preparations #WW

This spring my father and husband built us a lovely little raised bed to garden in.  Despite the shaded yard we live in, we feasted on kale, spinach and zucchini in the spring.  The summer crop left must to be desired with the occasional tomato.  Summer gardening in the heat of Georgia still requires more sun than we have.

My silly kid ready to help clear out the summer garden.

My best husband scooping compost to fill the garden bed.

All tilled and ready to go with fall seeds.  We had a lot of rain this week and I hope to plant this weekend.

    I would totally love to have a garden like that. I would grow everything. I hope a cute little girl comes with mine too.
