In the Garden

My mom has been in town this week, helping me get my garden in shape for the growing season.  There has been weeding, churning, mowing, raking, digging, and sowing.  I am so excited and thankful for the progress that has been made.  There are seeds in the ground!  Seeds that will hopefully turn into delicious food for our family: spinach, kale, romaine, red lettuce, peas, carrots, and beets.  This is a first for me (aside from the occasional container tomato), and I’m sure there’s a lot more to learn.  For now I’m basking in the spring sun and checking my plantings regularly, looking for signs of growth.  PB has been a big help, too.  She loves climbing up into those raised beds and digging around.  I think it’s great, but I am a little worried she’s going to eat a slug or two this summer…or maybe she’ll raid the herb garden instead.

  1. Yay for gardening! I am completely convinced that my kid will eat veggies because we garden together – she loves green beans right off the bush! I am jealous that you can start your plants outside already – we’re still a bit too chilly here for that, but I am hoping to get seeds started inside. Here’s to minimal weeds & garden pests!

  2. And, this one goes here . . . Georgia you are looking like your grandma when she was a little girl . . . cuter than a button! XXXXOOOO

  3. Sounds like you’re on to something, here. I am so thrilled to be in such a mild climate right now; so sorry about your winter! Spring will come eventually…
