Square Garden

Yesterday we went to the YMCA. Sarah & I went VT then went to "Old Macdonalds" for lunch and letting the kids run around before our second appointment for VT. Meanwhile, Tyler & Nathan were at Lowe's purchasing materials for our handy dandy Square Garden! We're excited to see if we can grow something. :) Emma & Anna had some fun romping around in the's been raining the past few days and it was VERY muddy--but the girls had a nice time while their dads worked in the rain, too. After they built our square garden, we went over to Nathan's house for dinner. Heather made some yummy tacos; we played cities & knights--way fun!

Today I dropped Anna off at the Primary activity and went to the YMCA to workout. Afterwards we came home and did some cleaning around the house with Tyler. I also made another Black Forest Cake--at Tyler's request--for our company tomorrow + for his birthday on Monday. The weather was SO BEAUTIFUL today...well, at least the temperature. The sun didn't shine much, but it was warm and smelled like spring...

LOVE the pictures. Can't wait to see what it will look like. I confess that I don't quite get the idea of what it will look like.

Hi Jill,

Great progress! How fun. I must admit though that people might get confused by you calling your project a "square garden" when it's a rectangle. :-) Mel Bartholomew's term is actually "Square Foot Gardening" because if you use his system the garden is planted in square feet using a grid to mark a series of individual 12" squares for planting within a larger square or rectangle. I hope I've explained it well enough to make sense. For those who are interested, check out There is an excellent picture right on the front page.
