Hey There!

The Fellow fancies himself a farmer and was dead-set on putting in a garden this year. All I really need are a few tomatoes and zucchini to be content, but he went all out.

Since our backyard is pretty barren, (We have a hard time even getting grass to grow!) We opted for a raised bed of sorts. My brother gave us some of his cattle mineral tubs to repurpose, and The Fellow drilled holes in the bottom for drainage. Then we lined them with rocks and finally some good soil from his grandfather’s farm.

We’re not the most attentive of caretakers, but we still have a decent little crop growing, and we’re starting to get the first of our veggies in!

I think next year I need to invest in a gardening book, because we’re pretty sure we got our timing off.

So far we have made zucchini pizza boats one night for dinner, The Fellow has been snacking on cucumbers and balsamic vinegar (not my thing, but he swears it’s good), and enjoying some fresh tomatoes on our sandwiches. I’m super excited to have BLTs on homemade bread!

How are your gardens going? Any tips or tricks for The Fellow for next year? Let me know in the comments below!
