and there’s more….

We finally planted our garden.  It’s something we usually do at the end of March, beginning of April at the latest, but this year we actually did it on May 1st.  It’s been a rainy, cold winter and had we done it sooner we would have lost most if not all our plantings.
I love the renewal and freshness of new plantings.  This year we added string beans and artichokes as our new trial.  Can’t wait to see how they fare.
Of course we can’t forget our little helper.
I love how interested she in the garden, the harvesting and the cooking.  A girl after my own heart.  Love it!
Of course she also helped me plant my planter garden stand.  and y’all know how that help goes, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I also love how our yard in general is maturing.  This is our second season and all the plants & trees are starting to establish themselves in their space.  And let’s not forget whose space it really is:
The Mochster!  And, yes, he’s getting old.  But he’s hanging in there.  Love him.  He’ll always be my first baby!
How does your garden grow?

    Hi, thanks for the comment on my blog, glad the link inspired you. Love your garden/yard, we were late planting too but we’re not growing a lot – potatoes, onions, tomatoes, courgettes and rhubarb but I have an idea for another area of the garden so maybe I’ll get some salad leaves and carrots planted too.

I love hearing from you!
