It wasn't even that hard to get started either. Micah trimmed back a tree, tilled up the land and composted it. We made the beds, planted our veggies and seeds then let the water and sun take over from there. Now we are seeing flowers sprouting on our produce which means the time to harvest is right around the corner. I'm kind of freaking out about how awesome gardening is. Getting out in the sun, digging up the earth, watching your hard work come to fruition is so rewarding. I love going out with Elsie every morning to water the garden, and watch her dig up dirt and put it into what she calls "Mama's Pots"
