The boys helped move dirt from the two small raised beds we already had in the side yard to the new beds their daddy and pawpaw built.
Two planter boxes made from some reclaimed shelving and parts of a pallet rack for our sweet peas and onions. As you can see, there is still quite a bit of water...and the grass is still growing!
We were able to build our music/noise wall. We used some old wind chimes, cans from the cafe, milk jug, a little wooden box, and canning jar rings among other noisy items. We will add more items along the way to this area. The boys love it!

We were able to plant our sweet peas, asparagus, dill, onion sets and potatoes last week and when the boys and I checked our garden yesterday the peas, onions, and even the potatoes are coming up! The plants we planted look like they are taking to their new area and are going to do well. The little boys were very excited to see the new growth...so was Granna.
The little boys are having a wonderful time learning how to garden. They love the flowers and are amazed that vegetables come from dirt. I can see I need to educate them a little more on what else it takes to grow food. We did a little more work on the children's area, but that is for another blog on another day. For now, I need to suck down this coffee and head over to the store and get ready to see y'all face to face. Until then...happy gardening...happy spring!
