A few months ago I repinned a friend's cinder block garden pin on the wonderful Pinterest site. Since the house we are renting right now has three huge stacks of extra cinder blocks this was the perfect solution and cheapest way for Ross and I to create a garden.
There aren't a lot of locations on our property that get the right amount of sun and have easy access. However, we did find one perfect spot right along the fruit trees that was relatively flat enough. We just hoed the weeds out and leveled the ground using a pick and a shovel.
Here's out garden wish list so far, but would love recommendations!! :)
Broccoli, Kale or Spinach, Cucumbers, zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, carrots, sugar peas(not in cinder block garden-they will be in a planter up by the house), basil, strawberries, bell peppers.
We are definitely looking forward to taking another step in becoming less reliant on produce aisle at the grocery store which seem like a rip off for tasteless fruits and veggies. As summer gets closer we will have rich soil from our compost, and we also don't trash our dog doo ;) we recycle LOL. Another blog will have to follow to explain that one.
Hope you all had a wonderful Monday!

PS. I wonder how the concept of recycling dog poop would go over with Preschoolers... might be one fun discussion.
