Almost there!

I got all the plants in the ground last weekend and just have a few more finishing touches.  It turned out so cute!  I love it and can't wait for all the veggies to grow :)

I planted tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, zucchini, squash, carrots, kale, kohlrabi, lots of lettuces, cabbage, green beans and many herbs!  I also planted sunflowers and marigolds along the fence.

We are still going to add a slate entrance area for me to hose off my muddy shoes and round the top of the gate :)  I am just so happy to have everything planted!

In the trenches

With the aid of a smaller rototiller and LOTS of shoveling, we dug a trench around the whole garden so we could sink the fence 1 foot underground.  I also lined it with bricks and then covered it back up with dirt.  Hopefully this will keep the groundhogs from destroying my garden!  It is so much work right now, but it feels great :) Last night we started building a garden gate, more pics to come!
