Since so many people have been asking us what our new garden space will look like upon completion, I figured it was time to give y’all a little sneak peek! We are keeping our garden space at home the same size with just the 12 raised beds we already have. We are going to make those a little deeper, add more flowers, and introduce rabbits in the spring. As far as our other space, this is where the excitement will happen! We started fencing in our 5,000 square foot plot last week and I made a spreadsheet based on those dimensions. Inside this little garden fortress we are creating, there will be 20 raised beds each measuring 4’x12′. There will be two beneficial flower beds measuring 3’x85′ each. We will have 2 row gardens; one measuring 20’x36′ and the other 10’x20′. We will also have a small shed with a water catchment system holding 250 gallons of water and a large compost bay. We thrilled beyond belief and so grateful for the outpouring of love from our friends and family. We can’t wait to provide more families with nutritious, clean food and spend more time doing what we love!
I took a little snapshot of the spreadsheet from my computer screen. The quality is poor, but at least you can get an idea from this:
We will keep y’all posted as we make progress and hopefully have more pictures to post soon! Until then, let us know what veggies are your favorite in the comments section below.
