Our Garden

I have been wanting to do a little vegetable garden for many yrs, and just have never done it. Last year, I had a few tomato plants, pepper plants and squash, and they all did surprisingly well!!! I had just planted them along the side of our fence, so I thought next year, I would do something a little more formal=) So, yesterday Shawn went to buy some railroad ties and layed it out. Today we filled it with dirt from his work, bagged soil and manure, and tomorrow........... I plant:) I love having the gratification of growing my own food!!!!! There is something about going out and picking a fresh vegetable!! Especially tomatoes...... the only way I will eat a tomato by itself, is fresh from the garden, unless of course it tastes like it is:) We grew up with a big garden every Summer, I hated it them, but as I look back, I am glad my parents did it. My parents had a pretty big garden, and would plant green beans, okra, squash, peppers, tomatoes and sometimes cucumbers!!! By far the hardest and most time consuming to pick were the green beans, and I hated doing it, but man they sure were good!!!! Now watching Addison help her Nana and Papa is great:) and I loved to watch her go and check the plants almost every day last summer, maybe this year she will have a little more to watch over=)
