Renee’s Garden Story

Hello! I am so grateful to the Almanac Garden Planner! This was my first time creating a vegetable garden.

I grew almost everything by seed. I’m so proud of the experience and can’t wait for next year!

Below are photos of building the raised beds and filling the bed with soil, as well as the garden in full growth!
