So we have spend a good portion of our week working on some of the merit badges. One of the merit badges we are working on is Family Life. Family Life requires that we work on a family project.
We chose a garden, raised bed, to be our family project. So we got the supplies we needed at home depot along with a couple of plants and got to work building the garden. We bought 4x4 raised bed kit and a 16 in x 16 in kit. The kits can be combined and that's what we did. Later if we want to add more we can too. I also got the book Square Foot Gardening. I'm going to read it over the next several weeks, months, so that by early spring I will be more familiar with gardening using raised beds and will be able to have a good amount of produce of the family.
Gardening is something I have been wanting to do for a long while now, but never did so Superstar needing a family project for the merit badge was a good 'excuse' to get the garden I have been wanting in! Yay, for scouting!
The following links, when you click on the date stamp, will take you the Facebook posts on my Facebook page: Catholic Christian Homeschooling that has pictures of our gardening project.
