Our DIY Strawberry Garden

We’ve been wanting a strawberry garden for some time now so we finally decided to set out to our local Home Depot and create our own custom strawberry garden.

Every errand and trip with my kiddos is an adventure in itself. Funny, kids will always find something to amuse themselves with.

I hope you can see all the items used to create our garden. One thing not shown here is our drip system. You can water it yourself or add a drip system to ensure there is enough moister for plants. All material was purchased at Home Depot and put together by hubby.

Do you have a garden? If so, what do you think is the biggest challenge maintaining it?

Our Family Video Diary

A minute a day

Our life in action

Have you ever thought of how great it would be to be able to actually look back and see a couple of minutes of your childhood? Maybe sitting with your family for dinner, watching your favorite TV show/cartoon, playing with your parent, being read a book by Mom or Dad? I wish I was so lucky, but at least I can do this for my kids. Here is my challenge to you…

The other day I am driving into garage with boys in the backseat. As we approach to park we see Daddy working out…pause. We sit in car for a minute and stare.

Me: “Wow…Daddy is strong!”

Rockford: “Yeah…like me.” 🙂
