Then, we flipped the boxes over and filled with dirt which was a combination of our yard dirt and the stuff in sacks that you can pick up in the gardening department. (Don't you love my technical terminology?) We also planted some things in 5 gallon buckets that we drilled a few holes in the bottom to allow water drainage.
All in all, it worked out pretty well. There has been hardly any weeding to do. I don't recommend the soaker hose method--ours snagged twice and sprung leaks and it was hard to get it to reach all the plants!
In the picture below you can see a bit of the garden. I was actually taking a picture of the kids playing baseball in the cool of the evening, but you can probably at least identify the tomato plants sticking up! In the pic, Sticky is getting ready for the pitch.
Peanut has the nerf ball in hand, ready for the wind-up. Chubby is looking on and learning, as always. Learning, learning, learning!
Oh, and here are my lovely chives, that are now about 4 times more plentiful. Chubby actually enjoys picking and eating them. You can also see a few cute little toes and a stroller wheel if you are observant. :)
So, how does your garden grow?
