Happy Monday my friends!
Can you tell I am excited about our tomato plants?
There is NOTHING like growing your own fresh veges.
The look, the taste, the smell.
my mouth is watering as I type!
Little man and I made a stop at the nursery last week.
We came home with a variety of tomato plants.
And our very favorite, squash plants.
We LOVE squash in these parts!
Every summer we enjoy a yummy squash casserole.
Using squash from our garden!
I make it so much, I think my family gets tired of eating it!
The past two years, our garden was in the same place.
However, this year we decided to change things up a bit.
Normally, the hubs tills it up all at once.
But, due to our tiller petering out, we had to change things up a bit this year!
So, here is a little "before" picture.
This is the area in front of our shed where we decided to plant.
And, here we are, hard at work.
Especially me, it takes ALOT of work to take pictures, you know?
As soon as I snapped a few pictures,
I put the camera down and then began digging as well!
Shew, it was HARD work!
So excited about planting these bad boys!
Little lady giving us step by step instructions!
After working hard, we were almost finished!
A huge thanks to my Grandpa,
who makes the most fabulous tomato cages EVER!
This year we also decided to put down weed mat.
This was the hubs fabulous idea.
After we tacked it down, we put dirt on top.
Sure hoping it will keep out those pesky weeds!
We shall see!
And, so far here we have the "after" of the start of our garden.
So excited to add more vegetables.
I SO love this time of year.
Have a great day my friends!
