New Vegetable Garden

Ammo the Dachshund's Vegetable Garden

Every year I like to plant a vegetable garden. After last year’s winter my usual veggie spot was looking a bit sad. Nothing a little gardening re-model couldn’t fix though!

My handy Dad got to work right away with a new plan so mom and I don’t have to pull weeds anymore…woohoo! Mom of course had to sit this one out, since apparently heavy lifting is frowned upon when you’re growing a baby.

Eventually (thanks to dad’s hard work) my new garden boxes started to take shape and it was time to get the dirt! (my favorite part)

I tagged along to help mom and dad pick up garden soil so my plants could grow big and strong.

While dad shoveled all the dirt into the garden boxes I stood guard to make sure no critters got in the way of our hard work. It’s pretty much a full time job.

The soil went in and I could hardly wait to get my plants into the ground. I’ve been saving bits of kibble all year to plant my kibble tree!

With soil in the boxes the garden was looking mostly finished….now it was time to plant!

After mom picked up some plant starts at the store I helped put everything into the boxes. Now all we have to do is wait for them to grow big and strong, and keep the critters from eating them! Don’t worry though, I know just the dog for the job!

    Ammo, did you know that your pal Martha Stewart has a recipe for dirt? That’s right. She even makes “dirt”. Who knew? You can google the recipe. It’s not to late to get some of the add in’s she recommends and put them around the plants you have already planted. My flower pots and veggies are incredible!!!

    I have garden envy 😉 Mine is an 8′ raised square bed, over the last 3 years it’s been taken over by the raspberry plants in half of it. The other half is tomatoes. I do those 2 things well, haha!

    WE don’t plant a garden but my dachshund loves to help dig holes to plant flowers. She just loves digging in the dirt.
