The Bruns are Going Sustainable

Ok, fine. We aren’t living off our land anytime soon (not sure 1/4 of an acre track housing would allow for much farming anyways). But, Chris got some inspiration and built a raised garden planter. He was so excited about it that he pulled Walt out of school early to help him plant the goods and give it a good watering.

First, you gotta get some dirt. As in, a truckbed full (omg)
Next, get your gloves on (and a tape measure?)
Then, get very, very dirty. 

Water your garden everyday (i.e. make it muddy)

Proudly display your handiwork

 Chris and Walt planted some herbs (rosemary, basil, and chives), and some veggies (tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers). And, now we wait for it to “grow up” as Walt would say. Can’t wait!

    that is great! Our experience is that jalapenos are very successful. So is arugula, cucumbers, and squash. The cucumbers…. Randall planted 2 seeds last year, and we were hauling in like 8 GIANT cucumbers/week. If you do that, I suggest learning how to pickle 😉

    You owe us an update on this down the road.
