Garden 2010 Ready To Go!

We worked in the garden last Saturday as it was a beautiful day!!! I cannot express how much I love the area where we live. When you have these gorgeous day's like last Saturday and today it just can't compare.

Anyways I did some weeding and cleaned up the flower bed and then we went shopping. We stopped at Lowe's to get a few things and figure out what we wanted/needed. We got some compost to add to the garden and a few flowers and weed killers.

After Lowe's we ventured out to Flower World!!! I love Flower World! If you haven't gone there you must. It's gorgeous and a great trip for kids. There's flowers and animals to look at by this pond. It really is a must! We picked up several more flowers for my front yard and some more starters. Like Broccoli and Tomatoes...

We stopped back at Lowe's to get Bell Peppers since we couldn't find any really at Flower World. And then we went home...eventually.

When we got home we added the compost to the garden and mixed it all up. We planted what we could and then went inside to get the seeds ready for planting.
It feels so good to have my garden done and out of the way now. I won't have to worry about it down the road. All I have to do now is water it. :)

Let's see we planted...oregano, green onions, cilantro, chives, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, potatoes, corn, lettuce, melon, cantaloupe, spinach, tomatoes, pumpkin, squash, and green beans. I'm excited to eat delicious vegetables again from our yard. Hopefully I can keep up with the production this year seeing how I won't be working this summer but I will have an infant. Still not sure how things will go but I am very excited.
