My Mother’s Day Pressent/Project!

I hope you will share!

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!

    I can't tell you how much I'm laughing. When asked what I was doing for mother's day I replied, "getting dirty in the garden". Lets say I got some strange looks from those who did breakfast out or dinner or …
    Cheers to gardening! Hope we can get some returns on the investments!

    I envy you. You see, I tend to kill anything I plant. I do love growing them, at least until they get tired of me and decide to die. So, I've decided to just live vicariously through your gardening life and am excited to see the photos of your plants as they grow! Good luck…and belated Happy Mother's Day!
