In the Garden

I don't think we spent a moment inside this weekend. It was beautiful. Temps were in the mid-70's so we decided to go ahead and put in our garden. We scrapped off the grass on Saturday and tilled it today.

We may end up deciding to expand the garden based on what we want to plant. We will see. We are also planning on adding an electric fence. Right now we have it hugging a slope on the front side of our property. It is the only place that gets a decent amount of southern sun without putting it in the middle of our driveway. It will get a little less sun in its current location but it will also be less visually obtrusive. I would love for it to be an ornamental vegetable garden, but we simply aren't there yet.

Ladybug needed a good washing from playing in all that dirt. She's mad here because of all the noise the tiller made.


Here's Nick workin' the tiller.


You can see Nick working while GreenEyes and I watched. I did some work too... I couldn't leave it all on Nick's shoulders. But someone did have to take care of the kids, so we took turns.



Good times.
