I feel like this is a big week for my mental checklist of life goals.
Not only did I finish my first quilt, I also made my first garden!!!

When J & I got married {almost 3 years ago!}, I remember saying that as soon as we had our our house I would plant a garden.
We always had a huge garden growing up {seriously, it was huge} and I've always been excited to plant my own.
Then we bought a house and realized how much work homeownership can be.
I am really excited and kind of surprised that I actually planted a garden the first summer in our house!!!

After MUCH help from my amazing dad {free wood and manual laber :D} and husband, SO MANY loads of dirt, and consecutive days of dirt in my fingernails later...

I have my garden!

I can't wait for all my tomatoes, pepper {LOTS of peppers!}, lettuce, zucchini, beans, and tons of other goodies! 
Have you started your first garden? Got any good tips for me as a first timer?!

It looks great already!! So jealous - can't wait to have space to put in a garden. Fresh veggies are the BEST!!

(Have the pups left it alone, so far?)

you are going to LOVE gardening! did I ever tell you that after I planted everything on my porch, I realized I get NO sun at all? like zero? yeah. pretty much the worst. But thankfully I planted a ton more with my old people, so we are seeing all kinds of stuff come up!

Awwww your garden looks great! My husband and I want to plant a garden out back, but we have to clear out a bunch of junk first! Good job!
