|Kids turning and leveling the soil|
This year, I had the kids turn over the soil and we added some crushed egg shells. . .then we plotted out 1 foot squares, for a total of 9 squares in our bed.
|a manageable garden plot|
We planted some sunflowers on the sunny side of the bed, in three of the squares. In the middle square, we planted seeds for a lettuce mix.
My plan is to get 2 tomato plants, a pepper plant, a zucchini plant and a cucumber plant to fill the remaining squares.

I need to figure out a way to thwart our friendly groundhog family as well. . .so stay tuned, and feel free to post any HUMANE suggestions! =)
