Yesterday, I mowed the yard-all of it!! After hubby got home he was all freed up to till between our rows in the garden, make some extra rows and then he went to get tomoato plants. Our garden is totally done and rockin' now. I love having a garden. Mostly I enjoy the family bonding when we all work in the garden together. The kids have a row of flowers that is planted in bunches...I wonder how they will turn out?
I can't wait to get fresh veggies. All of our seeds are sprouted and Erik could not help but buy pumpkin plants (I had tons of pumpkin seed-whatever) , more squash plants and watermelon plant along with the tomato plants. I am a firm believer in planting from seeds, but hubby likes the instant results plants offer. I like the plant from a seed, watch it sprout and then be the same size as the plants he bought. I keep trying to tell him there is a transplant factor-when you transplant, it "shocks" the plants a little and stunts their growth for a time while they acclimate to a new setting. I have no proof except-the seeds catch right up and sometimes pass the transplants. It happens year after year so I must be right...someone corroberate my theory!!!
We are off to yard sale and then go to a wedding this afternoon. I love weddings!
