Our Garden

We planted a garden this year. This is the first year that we have done this. Actually, this is the first time I have ever planted a garden. I have made some mistakes I have already found out, but I am sure it will all work out.

This is our starting plot. It has grown since this picture though. I worked soil all by hand. Jeremy did not have the time to use a rototiller on it for me.

This is going to be a family project. Here are the girls helping out. The little girls thought it was a great plan. Bailee had to be told to help.

Luken also chipped in. He thought digging in the dirt was a great idea. He loves to come out with me when I am pulling weeds and dig in the dirt.

I will keep you posted on the gardens progress.


  1. You'll want to put some compost around the roots of your tomatoes- they are heavy feeders.

  2. Ange, a question. I just found some compost in our shed. It has to have been there for a while. Do you think it is still good?

  3. Oh yeah, compost doesn't go bad. It continues to grow more bacteria, so usually the longer it sits the better it is.
