Our First "Garden"

Our family has wanted to start a garden for years now and we've been thinking a lot more seriously about starting one this spring. So, this past weekend, Steve went out in the backyard and started digging up our 16' x 20' garden. After about 5 minutes he came in the house and said, "Are you sure you want to do this? It's going to be a lot of work and take a lot of time."

So, needless to say, we came up with Plan B - to create Earth Boxes. We got the directions from this website and Steve went to work. We planted red, green and yellow peppers as well as a couple of tomato plants. We also plan to turn our sandbox into a little garden since the girls have outgrown it. Not sure what we'll plant there - probably lettuce, onions & cucumbers. Check back in about a month and see how it's going ;-)

I like the idea of using the Earth boxes. Thanks for providing the link. What soil did you use? Where did you buy your plants? I was going to plant in regular pots but now knowing about the Earth boxes seems like that's the way to go. Thanks for your help!
