The Garden Lineup!
Guess what I did today?
I finally placed my order for all of the wonderful seeds and plants that will adorn my garden this summer. It's definitely my most ambitious garden yet, and I'm by no means a pro, so wish me luck! The problem is that I can't look through these seed catalogs and not be completely taken in with all of the wonderful looking veggies. I want to grow EVERYTHING!! Barry just shakes his head at me... he does that a lot!!
So here's what we'll be trying to grow around here these next couple of months...
Heirloom tomatoes (I'm so excited about these!) Gurney Girl tomatoes Cherry tomatoes Canteloupes Sugar Baby Watermelons Eggplant Cucumbers Peas Green Beans Asparagus (which won't come up until NEXT year...) Buttercrunch lettuce Ruby Chard Spaghetti Squash Pumpkins Red Cabbage Zucchini Yellow Squash Garlic, Cilantro, Chives, Italian Parsley, Basil, & Oregano
My, oh my...that seems overly ambitious as I write it all out like that!! Wish me luck! And feel free to stop on over to help with the weeding! LOL!!
I'm a thirty-something mother of two, wife to one (haha), trying to live a simpler life in the log home my hubby built just for us. I've been called a tree-hugging granola cruncher by some of my friends, but I'm really not. I'm just trying to appreciate all the simple joys life has to offer...my rugged and handy hubby, my silly kids, good friends, great food, lots of fun, and of course, ICE CREAM & CHOCOLATE ! I love to laugh, so my day is not complete until I've made time to watch something funny before bed...mainly The Office! Come and spend the day with me... we'll have a great time, I promise!
