My Backyard Gardening Journey
What better time to start our dream of growing a bunch of crops than during a pandemic! Ain't no better motivator to do something than the fear of going hungry (or going out in public lol)
Me and the wife have been wanting to be "gardeners" for a long time, we just haven't really put the effort into it. Our backyard isn't that large (quite small by some standards) and we never had too much time. But we've got time now, all we need is the know how! So this will be a journey in the sense of we are both going to be learning as we go. We will be researching as much as we can, but honestly it's a bit intimidating, and I feel it's one of those things you just have to do and learn as you go.
Since we have such little space in the backyard, and we want to keep grassy areas for our daughter to play in, raised garden boxes are the choice for us.
I've built raised beds before for family members, just never for myself. One thing I really like about the boxes I've built in the past is that they are tall. That way you don't have to kneel down or bend over super far to work. The beds are almost at waist height.
Just like my beardie tales thread, this will be my "diary" for my garden.
So that's the plan!
