It's that time of year again...
Yep. Today we planted our garden. I thought we'd be doing more painting in our slowly-being-finished bathroom re-do, but no. Gardening it was :) Hubby had been working on tilling the soil and it was all prepared, so we headed out to the local feed and seed store for our veggie seeds and plants.
We had to visit the poultry nursery for a while when we were there. Look at those little peeps! I loved the coloring on these little chicks. I thought they looked like they had on little masks. And, how cute is a kiddie pool full of little ducklings....if only I had the right place for them to live...sigh.
We gathered our plants and seeds and came home to get busy.
On our list...
lettuce seed √
kale seed √
broccoli seed √
okra seed √
green bean seed √
sunflower seed √
various flower seed √
tomato plants √
jalapeno plants √
squash seed √
With a few packets of seeds and little manual labor, we had everything off to a good start.
Everything has been planted and now begins the "wait." The kids will be excited to see what comes up first and I will be excited to see what I can harvest first! I can't wait for that platter of fresh tomatoes with every meal, the fresh green beans sauteed with garlic, the piles of fresh lettuce and squash.....mmmmmm!
Hopefully the weather will cooperate and this year's garden will provide lots of goodies for our table.
So, do you plant a garden or at least a few patio pots with a few goodies? Have you already planted? What's on tap for your weekend?
Have a great one!
