My Birthday Weekend

I got a lot of work done in the garden this past week...radishes, scallions,swiss chard, and beets
all got planted.

There was time for a coffee outside while the kids played.

Reading by the fire..

We started tomatoes and green beans inside and I will have to get out and get pictures of

the asparagus, lettuce and peas all coming up nicely.What is coming up in your garden?

What do you have planned? New crops? Anything you decided not to grow this year?

Best birthday gift this year? Farmer Dad and the Princess captured the Ground Hog and

entered him in the "Ground Hog Protection Plan". I beg for him to set the trap every year,

and then feel terribly guilty when the little thing is caught and squeaking in the have a heart.

I am sorry I can not post a pic of the capture, the very nature of the relocation plan demands

the utmost privacy. ;-)

Planting onions in the Garden State

It was a lovely Spring day here in our little corner of the Garden State on Sunday.
My Princess and I planted the onions and shallots right in front of the peas.

I actually only did the first row, and then she took over. She measured and

planted them all.

Doesn't she look proud? If you could see my face, you would see I was even more proud of her.

"I'm really getting the gardening spirit!" she told me when she finished.

Then she helped Farmer Dad direct sow some lettuce. It was a good day!

I hope you enjoyed your Sunday wherever you are and whatever you did!
