The garden is in

Yay! We finished putting in the garden! We got the box cleared out two weeks ago, purchased the plants and seeds last weekend, and finally found some time dyring the past few days to get the garden planted! I sure hope we get a better harvest this year...but I think we will, if only because the main gardener will not be so distracted with impending birth and subsequent newborn...or the whole lead fiasco.

Mimi and Buddy both helped turn the soil, pull the weeds, and plant some seeds. Buddy helped plant some of the lettuce and spinach, as well as the carrots, while Mimi took over planting the tomatoes, peppers, peas and beans. Sweetsa-pizza was in charge of being cute and discovering garden soil...she loves it! Mommy got to do the rest (cucumbers, pumpkin, cabbage and strawberries.)

Now I just have to concentrate on keeping it watered and weeded...supposedly easier tasks with a square foot garden vs. a traditional garden. I love having a garden and the resulting yumminess!

Kaitlyn did a good jo of being cute! Someday I hope to live in the same place long enough to make a garden. I sure love fresh veggies. Good luck with the watering and weeding.
