How My Garden Grows: Weeks 5 & 6

Each time I go out to the garden, I feel like it's Christmas morning! The anticipation of what I am going to find, especially after a good, hard rain, is so thrilling! In our home garden, we have the following:

Cherry Tomatoes!!!

Pea patch that has been able to escape the bunnies!

The beginnings of our first cucumber

Here is an overview of the garden at home.  The newly planted beans have sprouted and so far so good with keeping the rabbits out.  It's hard to see, but I planted some onions bulbs to the right of the beans and once those sprouted I haven't had much trouble with the rabbits (hope that stays the case!)  The cucumber plant is on the move so I put up the trellis and I'm sure it'll be covering it in no time.

Children of the corn, ha! 

Beans at the rented plot are doing wonderfully.  No flowering yet, but it's only a matter of time!  I also put in another two rows, which have since come up.

There is a tomato on each plant, too.  I simply cannot wait for our first dinner of BLTs...on tomato basil bread from Panera...YUM!!

The onions are doing well too.  

I had a breakthrough in weeding since the last post. I used a flat shovel and and loosened up the soil before weeding.  Holy cow, what a difference! Pulling the weeds was effortless and they have stayed away.  I imagine that is what hoes are used for, but I had to improvise since I am hoeless.  Ha!

And that, my friends, is how my garden grows!

Silly Sally

Dear Noelle,

Here are just a few funny quotes as of late.  You are hilarious and the facial expressions that go along with them are just amazing.

"Who barked the horn?"


"Your breath is tickling my arm."


Me: "Do you want to go to the Planetarium tonight?"

You: (sounding super excited...) "Oh, is that the place where you lay back in the chairs and look at all the stars and stuff?"

Me: "Yep! That's the one!"



Thanks for being so great, kid!  I love you!
