What an exciting weekend! Rodney & Granny Carol spent last Thursday & Friday constructing our new 8' x 10' garden while the boys and I finished up our little stay at Harkers Island. So Saturday was an awesome day to go get three truck loads of soil and a bunch of starter plants at Lowes, and look what we have here! Our plants include:

2 tomato
1 cherry tomato
1 red bell pepper
3 green bell pepper
3 banana pepper
2 cantaloupe
3 squash
3 zuchinni
1 arugula (salad green)
4 lima bean (starting with seed, so time will tell)
4 pole bean (seed again)
3 cucumber

and a nice variety of herbs:
1 rosemary
2 basil
2 cilantro
1 oregano
1 sage

I can't wait to see how this summer crop works out! You guys have no idea how excited I am to be able to share this thrill with the boys and with Rodney, and especially share some (a lot) with friends and family. :)

Here are the pictures to document the very young plants... Hopefully the "after" picture in the next few months will be a totally different garden. :) Don't forget to look for our handy little gate that lets us in and out. Precious, I tell ya. :)

I love it, I love it, I LOVE it!! If the stars align, and I can rope some men into the project, I shall have a raised bed later this week.

My mouth is watering.

Darn, I'm signed in as Joel again. It is the mama here.

Rodney did a great job. Gardens are alot of fun with kids. Christian did mine for me too while I had taken Carman to a birthday party. We have some good men!!
