Our garden

Yes we have a garden. No it is not your normal, run-of-the-mill garden. Is anything we do normal?

We have tried to garden in the past unsuccessfully. Once, Todd plowed up a very LARGE area and it was way too overwhelming for me. We'll just say that didn't work out too well. I think we did get some food from it, but not much.

Our ground here is full of rocks and pieces of concrete. No fun to dig in.  Plus we would like it if our house would sell sometime in the near future. We don't want to work hard on a garden and then have to leave it! So Todd decided to make a container garden.

The kids got to pick out what they wanted to plant. Avrie -bless her heart- chose carrots. Did you know that carrots should not be started in egg cartons and then transplanted? We sure didn't!  So ummmmm we don't have any carrots in our garden.

We do have green peppers, squash, tomatoes and I think a watermelon plant. We'll see how that one goes.

Here is a current pic:

Look! We have a squash!  Or is that a cucumber? Man, I really should figure that out before dinner huh?

Do you like the bunnies? Those are courtesy of Ellie. Gotta have bunnies in the garden.

Here's our tomatoes. Todd made the hanging planter. I just love my redneck!
