Several weeks ago, Michael borrowed our neighbor's tractor to plow up our garden area. We decided for this year we would grow our garden in the traditional rows. I love the raised bed gardens dearly, but they are expensive and time consuming to get started. This year we needed cheap and quick to define our garden! There is also something beautiful about a traditional row garden. I remember as a child walking through my grandmother's garden, and I loved the flowers even then. As you can tell by the picture, Missy is still part of our family!
After the garden was plowed, our neighbor then brought his team of horses up to do the rest. I loved watching the horses work. There was something very peaceful about the whole procedure. We then began the planting process. Unfortunately, our first planting of seeds washed away. Last weekend, we tried again. I think we will see success this time. We are planning on having a huge garden this year. I heard the CEO of Walmart say that food prices will rise considerably over the next few months. That was all the incentive I needed to grow a large garden! Plus, I missed out on the whole garden season last year due to our move.
