I'm still sick so I have been taking it easy and haven't been running this week. However my husband and I have been talking about putting in a garden in the backyard. He even bought the planter box on the internet. Well we decided we would put it up yesterday. There were quite a few weeds to pull in the designated spot so I was doing a lot of squatting to pull out the weeds. Well today I feel those squats in my thighs. So despite being sick and not wanting to do an organized exercise I still got some exercise in by working on the garden. Here are a few pictures of the garden area as well as what the other side of the backyard looks like.
As you can see we cheated a little on some plants already ready. We bought two green bell peppers, 1 orange bell pepper, 1 red bell pepper, 1 zucchini, 1 strawberry, and 1 roma tomato. However, we did plant seeds for some lettuce and onions. We have been slowly adding grass to the back yard. When we bought it the back was all rocks and those two tree bushes. We still want to add a border to the edge of the grass area and then some stone borders around the garden box. We will probably add a few more individual pots too. But it's a start. I'm excited to get some fresh vegetable from our own backyard.
