We only filled 5 of 6 boxes with dirt (for now) So I have two and each of my kids has 1.

We wrote down what was where to keep track

We also have last years old seeds and this years I ordered online….and 2 different mixes of dirt…long story there….so it will be interesting to see what grows best.

Of course we will be writing it all down.

Now I better really work at this gardening thing…especially with the money we have invested….next year won’t be so much money
