Today I am sharing our family garden. When our oldest, Parker, was baptized, the pastor told us that the meaning of his name was the keeper of parks. He has definitely lived up to his name as he would pretty much live outdoors if we let him. He absolutely loves digging for worms, playing in the dirt, pretty much anything having to do with being outside.
I've had fun putting this little area of the yard together with him. In true fashion, I didn't spend any money and we had fun getting creative on ways to make a garden using organic materials.
Since we've enjoyed our garden so much, I thought I would share a couple ideas with you so you can start one with your family too!
First up, every family garden needs an official sign. On one of our walks, I grabbed this piece of wood from a neighbors trash pile. When we got home I wrote "Our Garden" on it with regular orange acrylic paint. This took all of 3 minutes but really makes the garden feel complete.
