One of the 1st things we did when we moved in, or should I say “I” did ;-) – was plant a garden. The previous owners left us their HUGE compost bin as well as a raised bed already made and pretty much ready to go.
I planted some seeds but also purchased plants already sprouted with a head start… since it was kind of late in the season.
None of my “lettuce” took… was just to hot and to late for it… but I have successfully grown so far tomatoes (a few varieties), zucchini squash, cucumber and green peppers. Oh and I planted a big pot of herbs too, they are growing great!
I even have evidence of some actual “real veggies” now :)
I do wish I had a bit more time to spend with the gardening outside… I just don’t right now.. but I do occasionally get out there and weed some. Doesnt take long to get filled up with tiny weeds.
Here is a far away shot that shows the garden’s over all size better…
My dad was helping my mom move up the hill btw :)
They were here a couple weeks ago and enjoyed some hugs and kisses from the boys. They will be here this weekend too with my brother Kevin, who I have not seen in about 3 years!! He has been in Germany serving with the US Air Force. We look forward to seeing him.
Here are a few more photos of my mom loving on baby Reed a few weeks ago.
