Garden Update #2

I see Carrots and peas in my future. Actually, I feel like the one carrot pictured may end up being my only descent one. But the process was worth it. Through all the hard work of planting my summer crops of tomatoes, sweet potatoes, snap peas, carrots, peppers, and basil, I have truly found gardening as my sanctuary to get away. I really love it. It calms my day to focus on something other than me or the life stuff that sometimes bogs us down. It's not for everyone. But it is for me. 

Anyone have any tips on sweet potatoes?? I went out on a limb and bought them, not really knowing even how to care for them. I think that is the part of gardening I enjoy. The anticipation of what may come up. Even if it isn't a whole lot. It still a wonder to learn about the plants, the different types of plants and how each one has its own little quirk.

Thank goodness for boys is all I can say cause they are gonna be some serious helpers shelling and harvesting if we get as many veggies as I anticipate. Off to weed I go!

Happy Memorial Day!!

It's been too long between posts......again. I always start this blog up with the intentions of posting more frequently and it just never seems to happen. 

So the least I can do is say we have the pool up and we are spending our Memorial Day thankful for our soldiers who fought for our right to enjoy this beautiful, fun and relaxin day with family.
Happy Memorial Day everyone!!!
