Gardening Glory

We finally got to planting our garden - yes, I said garden. A few years ago, I tried to grow herbs and ended up with a very well tended weed garden . . . an embarrassment to all gardeners world wide. This year, a friend helped me grow starts in the house to transplant outside . . . (and no - these photos are not really us - we were so messy and engrossed in our project, real photos were not part of the process - forgive the clip art . . . )

So part of our process was transplanting our starts, planting the extra seeds just for fun, starting a window box that won't rot like our previous attempts (this one is made out of rod iron), an indoor herb garden with cilantro, spinach and chives, and a topsy turvey attempt with tomatoes and strawberries . . . we also had a few flowers we bought on sale to fill a few pots we already had.

This year, we added a few garden gnomes bought on sale at Michaels along with new garden gloves and garden shoes . . . it was so much fun to be outside working in the dirt . . . and the girls were definitely ready to throw in the shower when we were finished . . .
It's not the biggest garden or most organized or best tended (we forget all the time and don't exactly know what in the world we're doing) but it was planted in love and I have high hopes of some produce for our efforts!!!
