Out in the Garden

With the gorgeous weather, we have been busy, 
getting the ground ready for our square foot garden this year!
The children love to help turn the dirt!

Our gutters are all set on the fence, and we have a vinyl overlay to cover them overnight.
(We are still in the danger zone for frost.)

Today, we put in the cinder blocks.... We still have some work to do with the dirt,
but we should be able to get our plants in soon!

(We will be using the pvc pipe and plastic to create a safety barrier for our cold nights! 
Our indoor sprouts are flourishing and we can't wait to start harvesting!
