How Does Your Garden Grow? part1.

I've wanted a garden for a long time now. Years in fact. So ever since we've moved to Sapphire Ridge (about 2 months now) we've talked about setting up a garden. Finally, this weekend we did it!
I did some research on the Internet to find out where the best location is. All of them stated a spot that gets lots of sun. This was the perfect spot in the backyard. It actually gets more sun. This was taken in the early morning.
Next we got our materials. We decided that the bed would be 4x8 ft. Those are actually 8x10 ft. boards. We also got 4-4 ft. 2x4's. We have to fence in the bed because of the furry friend Roxy. She likes to dig.
Next, we got to digging. By we, I mean dear, strong husband. I did pick up and throw away the large stones, weeds debris etc.
After a lot of hard work, we ended up with this! I'm so excited!
Next, we had to add the posts and the chicken wire, to keep Roxy out. This is the finished product. See all the sun it gets. This was about midday....
The sides can actually open. I have 2 ft. of space to sit/kneel and work the soil. As long as Roxy doesn't jump on the wire, this should be sufficient.
Next, we have to prepare the soil. That'll come later.
