We had wanted to do a garden for some time, then one day in the middle of a busy couple weeks Jeff took the kids and went to Lowes on Saturday morning and upon returning the Berg Family garden began!!
We decided to make raised beds so we could start with "ideal" soil and zero weeds. Found a place along the fence line in the backyard where sun we hit it every morning but not the entire day. The beds are 4' by 8' so we could reach the center no matter where we were standing (Using two 8' treated 2by12s, giving us a chance for corn).
But it wasn't too long before we saw a sprout...
AND then an EXPLOSION
