In My Pretty Garden...

the veggies are growing!Lettuce and cabbage!Cucumbers!

The boys who picked the cucumbers!Carrots!Peas!Cherry tomatoes!Potatoes!


We've also grown (but not photographed) strawberries, cantelope, onions, corn, green beans, parsley, basil, and thyme. See the stool sunk into the dirt? That's my pregnant-mama weeding stool!

We also didn't grow watermelons, pumpkins, and peppers. Not quite sure what happened there because last year we didn't have any problems. Maybe I got them in too late.

New to the garden this year...Roses!Beautiful, sweet-smelling roses. I have to cut the flowers to appreciate them, or I guess I could lie down on the ground to get a whiff...the plants are still quite small!

I never thought I would find gardening exciting. I always thought of it as a grandma hobby. BUT I'm hooked and the boys love it almost as much as I do.

Wow, that looks like a professional garden. I may have to get tips on how to get the soil ready for a garden--I'm considering doing one next year. And it has obviously been way toooo long since I've seen you and your boys because they look so much more grown up than the last time.

Quite impressive. Garden veggies always taste so much better than the ones from the store. Love those roses too!

I am so jealous of your awesome garden! It looks great! I especially love how neat the raised beds make it look. Have the boys enjoyed eating some of it?
