So Mother’s Day is always the one of two days that I can get my husband to do pretty much anything I want. I have to think hard about those two days (the other is my birthday) so I can get what I want done on those days.
This Mother’s day it was the garden. I am tired of spending tons of money on crappy produce at the store so I have decided to get in gear and grow my own again this year. We have a rental and we got permission to dig so Mother’s day was dig day! Here is my actual gift!
Just FYI I use this soil every year I plant and it works great and each bag is only $1.49! I get it from ACE. I needed the soil because as we dug out the grass it was so muddy from all the days/weeks of rain I needed better soil to plant with. At the price though you can’t beat it!
Here is where my herbs are and I can’t wait for these herbs to sprout!
This is the first part of the garden finished. I really took in one day with my hubby and 2 days by myself to get it finished. I still need to dig out another small one for the artichokes!
So this is why I have been MIA for awhile on this blog. I have been dead tired after working ALL day in the garden. We have a lot of fun things planted and I will post pics as they grow. We have; beans, peas, eggplant, carrots, hot peppers, 3 kinds of lettuce, purple cabbage, honeydew melon, squash, cantaloupe, tomatoes, red peppers and pumpkins with artichokes to come! Of course I will have to dig out the tomatoes, peppers, melons and artichokes as they start to grow and move them somewhere else but we have a great assortment out here! I actually have 3 topsy turvys that the red peppers and tomatoes to go in. I am excited to get it all going!
Thanks for coming by and reading today!
Please let me know what you got for Mother’s Day!
