Garden Time

It has been a while since I have done a post, but times are busy right now.  We went to Greenbrier over the weekend to spend Easter with mom.  Saturday was such a beautiful day, that we spent the afternoon outside doing yard work.  I weeded a flower bed at our house there and mulched some leaves.  Mike and I then did some more work in the yard to get the pool ready for use this summer!!!  I will be spending most of the summer there while Mike is gone to OCS.  I also decided I wanted a garden.  I have grown tomatoes in the past, but I wanted to expand my horizons and try some different things.  I want to start kinda easy, though.  So, I ordered a raised garden from Sam's.

It's not this exact one, but very similar.  It was delivered today, so filling it with plants is my goal for this weekend.  Again, the weather is supposed to be fabulous.  I am still trying to decide what to grow.  I'll do some tomatoes for sure, but I'm thinking about cucumbers, peppers (for salsa and pico), squash, and eggplant.  I would love suggestions for other yummy things to include that are also easy to grow!  I'm not sure if I have a green thumb or not!  Ha!


  1. You have a pool!??! I'm so jealous!

  2. I'm jealous. We have too much shade and too many bunnies for a garden and I LOVE fresh tomatoes.
