About 10 days ago, my father came over to build a raised garden bed for us as a gift for our anniversary. It was such a wonderful surprise and got filled with plants and seeds the very day it was completed!
Here's some of the progress:
Lettuce from plants
Carrots from seed with onion in the background
Beets from seed with cucumber from plants in the background
"Stringless" Beans from seed
I also planted tomato and pepper plants but they were pretty big already so I didn't show them.
I don't know what it is about it, but planting a seed and seeing it grow is amazing. The dead looking speck turns into a living, food-bearing plant. There is nothing with gluten here! It's easy to pick GF ingredients when they come from a garden!
