The Garden

Perk #356 of the new home is the yard.  This year I was able to plant my own garden with the help of my very hard-working, expert of a grandpa.  Here are some the pics this far....

We started from scratch, we removed the grass square by square (transplant below).
To the front of the house.

Tadaaa... added some landscaping stones.

This is the top level where we planted the tomatoes, peppers, and peas.

Grandpa added manure and soil to my awful, clay-like, soil.

Here he is tillin' up the land...

My first sprout.  Hard to see but it's in there!

Homemade signs. Found the wood slabs at Hobby Lobby, spray painted with chalkboard paint and added my labels.

And the Harvest... Lettuce

Green Beans

Sugar-Snap Peas


And Jalapenos.

I am still waiting to pick my carrots and green onions.  This has been a wonderful experience and have even developed a love for tomatoes!
