We actually got a garden in the ground this year. I didn't bother with starting seeds indoors as our weather is too unpredictable and crazy. Hubby and I built raised beds and a PVC framework that we could cover with plastic to make our own mini greenhouses. He figured out a way to incorporate a sprinkler system so it self waters too! We got two boxes built and planted along with a few rows of corn and some squash we simply planted in the yard. We got three rows of corn in the ground and four potato plants.



^Green house^


  1. That looks really good. I just plant mine under the sky, I'd like to have a green house like that but my animals would destroy it in short order.

  2. I would love to plant mine right in the ground, but our climate doesn't allow for that. We actually got a really intense hail storm this afternoon that would have destroyed the whole garden had it not been covered. I am still crossing my fingers that this works and that we have a long enough growing season to actually get produce this year.


We love comments! We are happy to answer questions, join in debate and conversation, or just say hi. All we ask is for respect. Respect us and others. Keep it civil. Obviously we aren't afraid of cussing but we don't like anyone degraded or invalidated.

We also know we make mistakes. Feel free to call us out. You can't improve things that need it if you aren't aware of it.

If you have an opinion share it but know if it is going to cause hurt to someone we care about we will not approve it.

Most of all have fun!!
