I decided I wanted a garden, which was tricky because of our living situation: upstairs apartment, all parking lot, no grass. So, I had Tyler build a planter that would stick in between the cars and the gate at the end of the parking lot.

Our bishop lives on a couple acres, so we went up to his property and asked if we could dig a hole. Not only did he give us that dirt, he also donated their compost pile, which is contained in the black trash bag.

Because we got started late, we just bought starter plants. Italian giant and Sugar sweet tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, basil, red bell pepper, cucumber, watermelon, and in seed form: romaine lettuce, giant radishes, and one pumpkin.

This is an ingenious idea.
I was wondering what you were going to do to get a garden.
Thankfully, you are a problem solver, and you certainly solved this problem. Nice work.
I'm excited for your pumpkin.

Did Allison give you the gardening bug? She certainly gave it to us! We just planted ours too. Keep us updated on your progress.

Seems like a lot of plants/seeds for that box. Keep taking pictures of your garden.

Wow, I'm impressed. Good job, Tyler, on the building of that box. Hope it turns out. Nothin' like homegrown tomatoes...

The radishes and the lettuce are in pots inside of our house. I'm not sure the lettuce is going to make it, but the radishes look very hardy.
