Well, it is officially spring at our house! The garden is turned over and cold weather plants like kale, various lettuces, and broccoli are in the ground. It sounds like it was so easy, doesn't it??
Now mind you, my garden is 5ft by 5ft. It was a first try last year, and I loved it. I am hoping that Matt will make me another bed this year. Some of you are laughing at my puny garden, but it is cute and manageable.
Hotrod and Princess love to garden as well. So the three of us planted the above mentioned goodies...together...yeah.
Here is the scene you need to imagine. Me, in my skirt, on my hands and knees turning over the dirt to mix in the compost. Hotrod learning to do the same, but managing to flick the dirt every single time...at me. Princess playing in the dirt with her hands and finding it very funny to put dirt on my back. Of course it didn't stay on my back...it went down my skirt and shirt and places where dirt just really shouldn't be!!!
Here are the sounds you should imagine..."Hotrod...dig in and turn, don't flick...Princess....really? More dirt?" (both children finding it immensely funny). To say that we were dirty when we finished is to put it mildly!!!
We celebrated with oranges on the back porch. Yes, more sticky! :)
