Now that we are nearing spring and summer, it's time to start thinking about what I'm going to plant in our garden!
Every year since we moved into our old Maryland house (where it came with a ready made veg garden) I have taken great pleasure in planning, planting and nurturing our veg. garden. Last year we moved into a house that didn't have a vegetable garden. After much deliberation, I talked my husband, brother and dad into building one for me! Inevitably it would have happened but I would have had to skip a year so we just did it.
Our first year, last year, was quite lucrative! Looking at these pictures reminds me of how much fun we had planting, tending and playing in the garden! Noodle has his own little dirt pile that he loves to play in while I'm in the garden. I am hoping this year will be just as lucrative in the veg department.
Now... what to plant?? Last year we had FAR too much zuccini... who doesn't? It's so easy to grow and forces me to be creative with a rather boring and tasteless vegetable.
I'm thinking this year I'll try out some fun things like okra... more to come!
This is one of my favorite pictures; enjoying the fruit of the garden... with only one boot on! Such a boy :)
