Tons of Pics! Garden and seedlings

Posted by   + Show Post

Hello, I have been lurking in the background :)

I grew up with a veggie garden and since we just bought our first house and got out of our apartment we are now able to put in a garden!  I am so excited.

Here is the progress...

This was the garden area before.  We took down the play set (it was from the previous owners and very old and rickety anyways)

We are in Eastern Pa and apparently when we went to till the area it was all clay underneath so we decided to put in raised garden beds.  This pic is when we discovered the clay :(

My husband putting in the garden beds that he constructed

And then we put in most of the top soil (6 cubic yards) that we had delivered from a local company near us!  It was a labor of love.  We spent all day shoveling the dirt from the front yard and hauling it to the back yard.  We have one box left to fill and then tomorrow we will be tilling in manure and soil as well.

Now for the seedlings!  My first time growing from seeds

How do the seedlings look?  Well I guess they are not seedlings anymore, but how do they look?
