Gardening added to the Mix (along with a little horse manure!)

While my family was visiting, my mom, daughter and I planted a garden. My mom has had a quite large garden for many years and I was thrilled to have her input. I'm a garden virgin. Tried once or twice to grow tomatoes in a pot, and didn't have very good results. So, I'm very excited at this prospect! I was ready to just dig a hole, put the seeds or transplant in...and cross my fingers. Mom gave me some better advice, and things are actually growing!

We have little tiny lettuces, little tiny radishes, little tiny pumpkins and little tiny cucumbers popping their heads up. During this whole process, my husband was giving back seat advice on where to plant what, how much space, etc, etc, etc.....He was very upset that one of his requests - beans - didn't get a seat in the garden. So, behind our backs, he "planted" his beans...scattered somewhere in the garden...well...I think they are actually coming up too. What a toot!
OK, this next picture is a little scary.......
Mom, I know you're gonna kill me for putting this picture on here! Sorry, but I had to document the afternoon! Thanks for helping!

I promise to start posting about my sewing concoctions again soon. I am very busy working on something, but don't have the liberty of telling you all about it yet. But I assure you, sewing is being done, and my house is a disaster zone to prove it. "Cleaning" and "picking up" is on an as needed basis right now! As soon as I can, I'll be showing you what I've been up to!

I am so glad you were able to plant a garden! Ther is nothing better then watching things grow from little seeds!

Our fist garden was last year and it was a blast! This year we hope we do half as good as last year---we are afraid we just had beginners luck!!

We have tomatoes, purple hull peas,
oakra, green beans, cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, cantalope, squash, and last watermelon!

We shall see...

Oh, what are you working on???I am so curious!

Hey Lacie-
I've got 6 tomato plants - although 3-4 are looking pretty sad after the hail. Squash (sad too), zuchinni, little pumpkins, jalepenos, yellow banana peppers, purple bell peppers, beans, cilantro, radishes, and lettuce. Crossing my fingers they all make a come back. We're excited to see the ones from seed popping up already.
