Family Gardening Party

Now here we had this great patch of land with so much potential, time to start from the ground up! 

To get things going, we had a new fence installed with two gates instead of ust one and a much larger footprint!  Then we set about prepping the bare ground to become a beautiful children's garden.  We dug up sod and clods of mud, redirected many a worm into the new garden space. 
We also started on the soon-to-be greenhouse.  (more about that later!!!)

While the greenhouse stood at a roughly framed-in-state, we were able to get several beds installed and filled with dirt.  The weather told us it was time to get the garden going, ready or not! 

On family gardening day, we planted "strawberry hill", where kids get to explore the ups and downs of the path through the many strawberry plants!

We have a crop of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, melons and strawberries all started thanks to our wonderful parent volunteers! 

Thanks to our many KID volunteers as well!

The fellowship and a shared meal afterwards was lovely!
