How old are they? I have kids who have been helping in the garden since 9

months, and they both love it. At 9 months they can smoosh the dirt around and have a sensory party, and as they get older they can dig holes, plant, and water. Most kids really love watering.

welcome to the funny farm! just kidding! :) welcome to TEG! there that's better. :)

do you have a good water supply there?
Actually my water supply is pretty horrible, so I would have to work on some sort of system for that. I have a decent sizer land but for some reason the property only has 1 water spigot which is odd. That's another reason we are using the raised beds, so we can strategically place them for the mean time.

LOL, yeah my oldest took right to it, she has been onboard with this lifestyle since we first started with chickens. My other 2 girls seem to think it's too much of a bother and the little on is a super diva that hates getting dirty lol. Just wait though, I will convert them lol

Welcome! I'm not sure about the saving money part. My husband says I could buy it cheaper and organic at Whole Foods, haha. But you can't put a price on gardening being therapeutic and healthy plus you get delicious homegrown veggies. I did stop trying to grow bell peppers when the start costs me $3.98 and I only got 1 pepper. Peppers are $1 at stores. But I try to cramb as much as possible in my tiny yard.

Once you get your raised beds laid out and planted we want to see picture!

For the diva, I suggest a trendy pair of gardening gloves ;-) It does wonders.

Lol, well I hope it will be cheaper in the grand scheme. I will be beneficial if I can get my girls to be able to take away some good lessons from it. Yeah I am still working on the layout due to the water situation, only one spigot for entire yard.
