mary mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow?

it's official. our garden is IN. it's nothing short of a miracle!!

we started building our growboxes before avery was born, and we just finished the last one a little over a week ago. yay!!

we have three cute little boxes, filled with raspberries, tomatoes, carrots, spinach, peas, yellow squash, zucchini, and cucumbers.

every morning, max {and sometimes avery if she's awake} comes out with me to water.
he grabs his shovel and plays in the dirt while i water + pep talk the plants.

it has been so much more fulfilling having a garden of my own...somehow taking care of my parent's wasn't quite as fun. i'm excited to "reap the fruit of our labors" come late summer!!


  1. Awesome! I can't wait until we can have a garden someday!

  2. I love those raised gardens! It looks nothing short of exquisite. One day, hopefully by next summer, we'll be able to copy you. Enjoy those fruits.

  3. Is that YOUR WHOLe backyard? Or are those bushes the fence line between your backyards? If not, that is the biggest backyard EVER! i wish Brin had a place to just go run outside like crazy and actually...ahem...get to be a toddler and just RUN RUN RUN! (sigh) someday!!!!

    Love you guys. Keep us posted what grows! Those boxes are beautifuL!
