My Veggie Garden- Goodbye Grass!

After dreaming about it all winter, the day finally came for me to start digging up the grass for my vegetable garden! I was beyond excited, as you could probably tell from this post. I started early last Saturday morning and my mom came down to help. When we were ready for a break we took a trip to Lowe’s ( Like you always have to do when starting project! It’s one of my favorite parts.) And bought some nice dirt, bonemeal, a  good rake and got back to work. 


 This is what it looked like before. I really wanted to move my neighbor’s trash can so it wouldn’t be in the photos, but I chickened out!



Can you find a hidden Jeeves?


And of course, these guys supervised us the entire time!

We got all of the grass dug up last weekend. Next we are going to build a picket fence around it to keep out the rabbits. Hopefully the weather will be nice this Saturday!

  1. Looks like fun! Lucky you, already digging around in February! We usually don't start our gardening until late April. Looks like you had a nice day to do it, the sky is so blue! Cant wait to see more posts about your progress.

  2. I'm getting goosebumps just looking at this amazing project! I miss doing outside work! I used to help with stone work on homes/building cabins, and it was a lot of fun/hard work.
    In those pictures you look like you mean serious business! Haha 🙂
    P.S. – I couldn't find Jeeves! I feel like a derp!
