and I have been working has been working so hard on our garden, and things are already sprouting nicely! Having a backyard garden is a great way to save money on groceries, have family time in the yard, teach your children about where food comes from, and have a sense of accomplishment once the produce is on your plate.
We have (4) 4 foot x 4 foot raised beds. Several of our plants came from seed, and the rest were transplants. We used organic plants, seeds, topsoil, and dirt.
