so we got into the spirit of spring/early summer and decided to try our green thumbs. we bought flowers to plant along with fruits and vegetables. so for family home evening a few weeks ago we put the plants in the ground. and as you can imagine, tyrell had a great time using the rodda tiller. you would not believe how wonderful the soil is here. for the garden we just took the grass off and tilled it up and it was rich dark soil with plenty of worms. we planted begonias, coleus, and a hydrangea in the front, along with the pansies i got from church on mothers day.
the garden has 8 tomato plants, 6 cucumbers (we lost two) 4 lettuce, 4 green bell peppers, 4 yellow bell peppers, 4 red bell peppers, and 4 green chilies. and i am pretty sure that is too many vegetables for a 10'x3' piece of ground. in a smaller spot we have watermelon and strawberries. we also have a raspberry bush that has not yet found a home. carter came out to join us and was an adorable spectator throughout the whole thing. lets just pray that they all survive!
