This is why I (especially) love Maricopa- my neice Indianna! Mom & Dad stayed at our house for the first part of their stay and then stayed with my bro the second half. It was only the second time my parents had gotten to spend seeing their grandbaby so they were just exstatic!
I took off a few days of work- which was much needed- and got to work on designing a garden for my side yard. The space is really tricky since our entire yard is only 35' X 9'. So we did lots of measuring, LOTS of looking in my Arizona garden guide, and lots of color cooridinating and figuring out the full sun/part sun plant issue. I never realized how much planning would be involved with the garden...I am still extremely sore. My dad and I nailed these huge steel rods into the ground and through these huge beams- and wow- my back aches. I am such a weakling. It was surpising how much dirt we needed = 25 bags!!
So after all of the back breaking hammering we got to fill in the dirt...by the time it was dark. Doesn't my dad look so cute in his sweatband! :)
I had such a great time getting the flowers and seeds. Here is the finished product!!
I planted carrots, lettuce, turnips, broccoli, spinach and will add peas in the next few weeks. I am so excited to grow SOMETHING!!
