They planted ‘Kentucky Wonder’ bush beans and some yellow wax beans. They were able to eat green beans for lunch that they grew in their backyard.

They have signs of little yellow squash growing too. They should be able to harvest squash in just a few days.

If you have been thinking about gardening, you can start small with a raised bed. The husband in this gardening duo had never planted a seed before, but he is now able to harvest vegetables from his backyard.

Please don’t think of gardening as expensive, complicated, or difficult. Start small, and enjoy the process. Gardeners are always learning, so don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know.

You can read about how they started their garden in this post, and follow their progress.

  1. I can’t believe how much the garden grew in just two weeks. I wish here in Michigan we could get results like that. I know — patience, but it’s so hard waiting.

    • The waiting is worth it though. Taking pictures helps you see that the garden really is growing. I have been excited to compare the monthly pictures of my gardens.
