Maintaining a garden is a labor of love, but since starting our garden at The McGee Home, we’ve learned so much about what works for us and what makes the process even more enjoyable.
We’re excited to share how we’re prepping our garden this year and a few of our favorite essentials.
Here’s a few updates from our garden:
I love to be outside working with my hands, so I can’t be on my phone or laptop! It is also extremely gratifying to watch a garden start from nothing and grow and flourish over time – it kind of feels like magic.
I have learned that you don’t have to be an expert to just get started. I love to google and research online to mitigate mistakes, but ultimately, but doing the work has taught me the most. Not everything will be perfect – and that’s okay.

My kids love to potter around in the garden with me and it brings me so much joy. Our kids are big fans of spaghetti squash!
I should have made room for more raised beds because I love it so much.
I love having herbs like thyme, basil and rosemary to be able to clip fresh while cooking.
