Our Garden

Lindy and Elise helping in the garden.
    We stated our garden this weekend.  Our neighbor was kind enough to come and til the land for us one time.  Will borrowed the tiller from his mom to do a second round of tilling before we planted anything.  The kids all wanted to help get the big clumps of grass and rocks out.  Charlie helped me the most with the planting.  We planted tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and watermelon plants and also some pumpkin, lettuce, carrots and zinnias from seed.  Will planted potatoes and a blackberry bush.  I can already tell that some of the plants have grown and it has only been 3 days!  Hoping for a garden full this year, we would love to have plenty to share!
