During the month of March and April, we had a very unexpected early spring in the state of Wisconsin. It's typical to get snow until the end of April or even into May. But, not this year.
This year, Jon and I decided to build a raised garden. As mentioned in several posts, I have a back condition that causes me to be in chronic pain. My husband was sweet to think of building me a raised garden; which means... NO bending! I am able to garden with the rest of them and love it.
Putting this raised garden together posed a few challenges, but it was definitely worth the effort. We picked out the vegetable plants and seeds; green beans, green pepper, red pepper, jalapeno, Thai basil, squash, 5 tomato plants, lettuce, and peas. It's pretty ambitious for 2 people that haven't gardened before.
