Family Garden Year One

Just before Allison arrived we started our first family garden. My Uncle Sam visited and provided a wealth of knowledge on how to start. We decided on a raised garden and made the box out of wood from my brothers decommissioned pool deck. We mixed in compost from the local recycling center with the lawn & soil inside the box and then started planting.

While I was out taking pictures I noticed Tom hiding in the woods. I threw together this short video slide show in a few minutes with iPhoto.
