Vegatable Garden

We have been wanting to plant a vegetable garden since we moved into our home 2 years ago. Putting in the backyard took priority the 1st year and last year we were busy with baby Aubrey, but now we are ready.
On Saturday we prepared the side of our home next to the dwarf apple tree by pulling weeds, leveling the ground, building a planter box about 12x6 and filling it with dirt. Now its already for the veggies I will buy on Tuesday. We want to plant tomatoes, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, bell peppers, pumpkins, and maybe carrots, corn and green beans. I am going to let the girls plant some flowers so they can have there own plant to take care of, plus the flowers will help bring bees to pollinate. I hope it will be plentiful.
