Spring Gardening

Yesterday we planted our vegetable garden. Besides the basil and rosemary herbs we already have, we added:
-Roma and Jubilee Tomatoes
- Crooked neck squash
- Cucumber
- Red bell pepper
- Cantelope
- Watermelon

I still have half a garden box available but I couldn't think of what else to add. Any suggestions?

The kids were great help. Carson sampled the dirt while Emilia picked all of the tree blossoms she could reach to see if they really tasted like popcorn.


I met my snake quota for the year while weeding. I came across a small garden snake hidden beneath a stone next to the garden.  I was so proud of myself for not jumping and screaming.

I can't wait to taste the fruits of my labor.

Your so good. I wish we had some room to do that.

I can't wait to plant our garden. The snow though is finally melting, and so next we need the ground to dry a little, then we put in sprinklers, sod, and then the garden! I think we'll have a short growing season :( We miss you guys, and I'm jealous of your warm weather!
