Our Little Garden - Lettuce

As salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah

This year we finally started a little garden. We have a modest sized back yard. We took advantage of the cheap composting bins our county offers, they hooked us up with the Earth Machine, mashaallah:

at some point we can get some nice soil from it inshaallah, but for now we are just using bagged organic mix we got from the hardware store. The boys like to dump the kitchen and yard scraps into it

 We are growing organic heirloom lettuce, we got the seed as a freebie last year from Earthbound Farm, and organic tomatoes, we got the seeds from eBay.

Here is our little lettuce grow one week in. The tomatoes are still sprouting in their little plastic box, not much to show there:

I used to have a garden with my dad and it was so fun I hope the boys enjoy growing some food this year inshaallah
